Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

A group backed by GOP strategist Karl Rove is wading into the California Senate contest, launching a new TV spot blasting Sen. Barbara Boxer for voting for Medicare cuts included in the federal health care legislation.

Crossroads GPS, a nonprofit group spending millions to back conservative candidates across the country, reportedly spent $1 million on the week-long ad buy. The group is part of a larger nonprofit political operation created by Rove, the former top aide to President George W. Bush.

Kam Kuwata, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Democratic Party's CEO Watch campaign, slammed the ad buy, saying Fiorina is "getting rewarded by Karl Rove and Texas oil billionaires for supporting tax breaks for companies that ship American jobs overseas."
