More Whitman Sachs Ads?

Frankly, it is hard to imagine an ad better suited to attacking Meg Whitman than Poizner’s Vulture ad, but the CDP and Brown might just be looking to expand upon it:

The California Democratic Party, coordinating with Jerry Brown’s campaign for governor, is expected today to launch an attack on Republican front-runner Meg Whitman in the form of an “issues” ad calling on Congress to “stop special favors for wealthy Wall Street insiders,” sources told Calbuzz on Thursday.

The assault – which the Brown campaign would not confirm – comes as private polling by Republican Steve Poizner, by Whitman and various other candidates and initiative campaigns shows the Republican race for governor now within 10 points, with Poizner closing fast. (CalBuzz)

CalBuzz has it on good authority that the buy will be around a million bucks, so it’s nothing to scoff at. Not Meg Whitman points, but to see some real action from the Brown campaign is very, very good news.

  1. If Brown’s strategy was to wait until Poizner attacked and found the chink in Whitman, then pile on, he has played this brilliantly.

    Now I’m hoping that his strategy is to oppose taxes until he’s in office, then be forced by conditions and public opinion to respond.

    I must note that all the hopes I projected onto Obama have been somewhat tarnished.

  2. I got a phone call a couple days ago from a pollster testing out some anti-Meg messages, and I can’t wait to see them hit the air.
