Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

GOP U.S. Senate hopeful Tom Campbell, now trailing opponent Carly Fiorina in some polls, has gone back on the air in the final days of the primary.

Campbell had pulled his television spots earlier this week, the Los Angeles Times reported. The ad resurgence comes as Fiorina appears to be widening a lead in the final week before the June 8 election. Two recent polls have given her a roughly 15-point edge on Campbell.

Campbell's spot hinges on the results of a recent USC-LA Times poll, which showed Campbell the only candidate beating Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer in a hypothetical general election match-up. The poll, which gave Fiorina a 15-point lead, also found that Campbell would beat Boxer, 45-38. Boxer beat Fiorina in the hypothetical match-up 44-38.

The 30-second spot, which you can watch below, will air statewide on cable and in select broadcast markets, including Los Angeles, through Tuesday, a campaign spokeswoman said.

Meanwhile, the Fiorina and Boxer camps have been trading blows on Fiorina's new ad attacking the three-term senator. The Mercury News has more on that here.
