Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

California Congress in Play.jpgCalifornia Sen. Barbara Boxer's prospects of winning a fourth term this year have dimmed, according to a new appraisal by CQ Politics, an arm of Congressional Quarterly.

The CQ Politics appraisal, changing Boxer's race from "likely Democratic" to "leans Democratic," is based largely on recent polls indicating that Boxer is in a virtual tie with the two top Republican candidates, Carly Fiorina and Tom Campbell.

"And while the three Republican candidates...have benefited from plenty of earned media thanks to their testy primary battle, Boxer's drop in the polls came before any of them were on the air with campaign ads," wrote CQ Politics' Emily Cadei.

The full appraisal can be found here.
