NRSC to infuse $3 million into Californian Senate battle

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.

New Obama video for Boxer

(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."
