    Whitman would be a better choice than Poizner...........Poizner is driving us crazy with his idiotic recorded phone calls, 3 in 1 hour is excessive. Unfortunately for our bankrupt state that is full of Union control and welfare/illegal cases we will probably be stuck with Gov. Moon Beam again, to bankrupt our state even further, with more tax increases and out of control spending....say bye, bye to more businesses in California

    Here in California, we have two women runniing in the Republican party cliaming to be something different and new.
    Other than being female, they are the the stereo-type Republicans!
    Bot are very wealthy, both form corporate America and both using their sizable wealth to buy an election.
    If Meg really wanted to win this election she should have put out one ad a month and given the nearly 75 million dollars she has already spent to the state to help our deficit instaead of using it for her ego trip.

    Whitman's taking the "Romney Route" to office – trying to buy her way in. Let's hope it works as well for Whitman as it did for Romney.

    For a state who elected a clown like Arnold which ever of these female clowns they get they definitely deserve, such a rediculous state and full of so many clowns, how did they ever get to the status they currently hold, it is truly amazing and what is more rediculous is the stupid Republicans who try and insist they can do a better job, like WOW, how dense are the people in CA?

    Both Whitman and Poizner are HORRIBLE. I love how the Republicans are playing dumb about Arnold Schwartnegger. Oh golly gee the Republicans voted for him but didn't know what they would get?! The Republicans have no business in California – go run off to some Neo-Confederate state where you belong. CA is a liberal state. Deal with it or leave it.

    Just a reminder to the Senior Citizens ...

    The President got this done with no Republican support. Do you really want to make "THE PARTY OF NO" stronger by electing MORE Republicans to the House of Representatives and the Senate?

    A Vote for the GOP is a vote against your own self interests .... and a vote for gridlock___________________________

    That's right, vote for the Donkey and we will take care of your every need, we'll pay you for your vote with some tax dollars. Don't worry about where the money is coming from, Social Security will be their for your grandchildren, what debt, trust us....

    I think Whitman would due a descent job, the problem is she self sabotaged her own campaign flip flopping on Immigration. She's a moderate pretending to be a Tea Partier and

    Meg will be the next governor of California. Jerry Brown is old news. We need new energy in this state.

    California has been destroyed by Liberal leadership...
    Hands down... any issue they have they need only look at the left wing leadership that has maintained power for decades...

    Take a good look... because that's where we are headed on a federal level...
    42K per person debt in the state alone... doens't count the fed debt...

    Meg Whitman is indeed trying to buy herself the Governor's seat. I am pretty tired of her radio ads and having a mailbox full of her junk mail. She is a cookie cutter Republican spitting out the same old talking point's. Nothing new to see here...move along now.
