National Republican Senatorial Committee pours in $3 million for Fiorina

With outside groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce already pouring in millions to defeat California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, the National Republican Senatorial Committee announced a $3-million independent expenditure for television ads in the final week of the campaign.

The committee, which rarely makes major expenditures in California, had already spent the maximum allowed -- $4.8 million -- in coordinated expenditures with GOP nominee Carly Fiorina's campaign in what it views as a highly competitive race.

"This critical spending continues to demonstrate our confidence that the California Senate race is neck-in-neck thanks to Barbara Boxer's out-of-touch, reckless Washington spending agenda," committee spokeswoman Amber Marchand said in a statement.

The new independent expenditure comes after Fiorina announced she was putting another $1 million of her own money into the campaign, allowing her to match Boxer's cash on hand for the final stretch.

With polls showing a close race, Fiorina, former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard, is also airing a new television ad Monday criticizing Boxer's support for the Obama administration's economic stimulus package "while 2.25 million are unemployed." You can watch Fiorina's new ad below.
