Steve Poizner set to launch first campaign ad

March 1, 2010 |  6:25 pm
Republican gubernatorial candidate Steve Poizner is set to unveil his first television spot of the campaign Tuesday -- painting himself as the race's true conservative and dissing his Republican rival Meg Whitman.

The ad refers to Poizner as a Ronald Reagan-style supply-side tax-cutter, and offering him as the best hope to save California "from liberal failure."

The ad berates Whitman for "false negative attacks on Republican Steve Poizner's conservative solutions."

Poizner also vows to "Save billions by cutting taxpayer-funded benefits to illegal aliens."

You can watch a copy of the ad below.

Details on the size and scope of the amount of airtime purchased by the Poizner campaign were unknown.
