Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is ramping up its aid to Republican Senate nominee Carly Fiorina in the wake of recent polls showing the former Hewlett-Packard nominee trailing Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.

The Fiorina campaign today announced that it has teamed up with the committee to launch a new statewide television spot attacking Boxer.

Set over a dramatic score and black-and-white images of cropless fields, tent encampments, struggling businesses and a foreclosed home, the narrator alleges that Boxer's time in Washington has been spent increasing spending, stunting job growth and "crushing hopes."

An e-mail sent by the committee said it has poured "$2 million in coordinated funding" into the Senate contest. The message to supporters praises Fiorina, saying she "withstood the initial attacks by Senator Boxer and is still within striking distance."

A Field Poll released Sept. 24 showed Boxer leading Fiorina by six points, 47 percent to 41 percent.

Watch the 30-second spot below.
