Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

GOP Senate hopeful Carly Fiorina is taking aim at her could-be general election opponent Sen. Barbara Boxer in two new television ads.

One 30-second spot, which you can watch below, features close-up shots of people lamenting spending, the deficit and Washington. The second hinges on the question: "Does Barbara Boxer's big government mean more jobs?" (Fiorina's answer to that one, of course, is no.)

But Fiorina has to emerge as the winner of a hotly contested three-way primary before taking on Boxer in the fall. Recent polls have shown a tight race between former U.S. Rep. Tom Campbell.

And she's not the only candidate in the three-way race already hitting the airwaves with shots at the three-term senator. Campbell has run a spot blasting Boxer for asking a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers brigadier general to call her "senator" rather than "ma'am" during a Senate hearing.

Watch the two ads below:
