LOS ANGELES - To spend any time at all in California these days is to feel the gale force of Meg Whitman's money.

Sure, California has seen its share of wealthy novice politicians from the business world, most of whom have failed. But the billionaire former chief executive of eBay is waging a campaign for governor unlike any before, both in its resources and in a no-voter-left-behind strategy that no Republican here has ever tried.

Like earlier big-money candidates in this vast state, Whitman has carpet-bombed the airwaves. Lately, she has been running more than 1,300 television spots a day, according to the Campaign Media Analysis Group, which tracks political advertising.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'>It is the most expensive campaign ever for a nonpresidential election. Whitman has poured $139 million of her personal fortune into the race, outspending her Democratic opponent, Jerry Brown, by better than 10 to 1</span></div></div>

Buying an election?

How elitist is that?

Who is that other snake in the grass..........oh yeah....Carly Fiorina. Another super rich elitist running for office.....

Whitman spends her own money on a campaign and you complain.
Republicans get money from PACs and businesses, and you complain.
C of C gets money from foreign contributors, donates to Reps, and you complain.
Is there any way Republicans can pay for campaigns that would meet with your approval?

Where were your complaints when Obama was setting records raising money on the internet?
