The news Monday that the National Republican Senatorial Committee planned to dump the money to California, at this stage of the campaign, was enough to cause a double take. The NRSC was already in the and 4.8 million in coordinated expenditures – to the nearly eight million and total expenditures in California plus commission has publicly committed to any state this year and increasingly in California.
With a huge Democratic advantage in voter registration, no independent polls show Fiorina to head in the last month and a new poll Tuesday Boxer giving a lead of 9 points; the California Senate contest looks like a sucker bet for Republican Party.
So why are the Republicans throwing all that money? Two big reasons: because they can and because they must.
Map the contours of the Republican Party allowed the NRSC to spend money in California without cutting other candidates need – unlike the Democrats, who have been forced to make some difficult decisions recently allocation. And Republicans have no choice but to make a serious career in the Golden State if they have any hope of taking the Senate.
Fiorina was sidelined on Tuesday for an infection related to post-surgery before breast reconstruction. His campaign said he would be out of hospital and back on track before – and keeps issuing press releases fighter attacks.
In the heart of the Republican Party’s investment is the belief that race is much closer to the public policy survey poll Tuesday that showed boxer to 52 to 43, or last week the Los Angeles Times poll that gave the holder an advantage of 8 points.
“On the participation model to be exact, I should say worst environment for Republicans in 2006,” said a Republican Party member familiar with the spending plans NRSC Times survey. “We have two tracking surveys show that both Carly and only one point below 50 Boxer, which is a bad place for an incumbent that after spending so much money.”
Recent election has also convinced the Republicans that voters are differentiating between Fiorina and Meg Whitman gubernatorial candidate, who seems to be sinking in his race against former Gov. Jerry Brown.
“Carlos can win even if Meg does not win,” said the operator.
California also could prove critical to the calculation of the 10 Republican Senate seats. To win a majority, the GOP must capture the eminently can win Arkansas, Indiana and North Dakota, up in the air in Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wisconsin, and one of the three longest throws: California, Connecticut and Washington. All are deeply democratic states into play by the terms of this year.
