Whitman up on air (again? still!) with new radio ad

Meg Whitman has an updated statewide radio ad out today, which hones in on her three-point plan for California: create jobs, cut Sacramento spending and fix schools. The minute-long spot allows her to elaborate a bit more than previous ads: she wants “targeted” tax cuts and to eliminate the sales tax on factory equipment; a “strict” spending cap (she’ll have to go the voters for that) and “new ideas” to use technology to eliminate waste and duplication. For schools, she wants to send more money directly to the classrooms and give parents “more choice.” A lot of buzzwords and phrases that have become like comfort food for the masses.

To give it all some heft, she pitches her 48-page plan “to build a new California.”
