Washington (CNN) - National Republicans are dropping more cash into California's close contest for the Senate.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee says it's injecting $3 million in ad spending into California this week on behalf of GOP Senate nominee Carly Fiorina. They say that brings to nearly $8 million the amount the NRSC has spent on behalf of the former Hewlett-Packard CEO.
The ad buy comes as a Los Angeles Times/USC poll indicated that three-term Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer held a 50 to 42 percent advantage over Fiorina among likely California voters.
(CNN) - Embattled California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer's campaign released a new radio ad Monday that features President Barack Obama reaching out to voters on Boxer's behalf.
In the ad, entitled "Shoulder to Shoulder," the president says, "This is Barack Obama. On November 2, California has a choice, and the stakes couldn't be higher. I'm asking you to get out and vote for Senator Barbara Boxer."
(CNN) - Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain dealt some harsh criticism to California's Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer on Saturday.
“Barbara Boxer is the most bitterly partisan, most anti-defense senator in the United States Senate today,” McCain said. “I know that because I’ve had the unpleasant experience of having to serve with her.”
McCain spoke at a rally for veterans and supporters in San Diego for Republican Senate candidate and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.
(CNN) - Carly Fiorina, the Republican Senate nominee in California, released two ads Tuesday with the same message: her Democratic opponent, three-term incumbent Senator Barbara Boxer, represents the failures in Washington and she represents change.
Each 30-second spot, intended to target independent voters starts with Californians interviewed by the campaign about the problems they see with Boxer and Washington.

(CNN) - Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer received some help from the president Tuesday in a new web video on her campaign website and on Youtube.
The minute long spot, which is not airing on television, shows footage of Obama at a California campaign event earlier in the year.
"You have in Barbara Boxer a sub-compact Senator with a seemingly inexhaustible supply of energy," Obama says in the video. "I expect you to be out there making phone calls and knocking on doors and rallying the troops to make sure that you return Barbara Boxer to the United States Senate."
