I’m told that Treasurer Phil Angelides, who has a narrow lead in the Democratic primary for governor of California, shot his own TV spot late last week in Sacramento to match the advertising that his rival, Controller Steve Westly, is rolling out in test markets. The spot is said to include footage of the frontrunner before enthusiastic supporters at a faux rally. Is this spot intended for air in the very near future, which might trigger a premature spending war with the super-rich Westly? Or is it intended, at least at the moment, to reassure financial supporters? The Angelides campaign says its policy will be to not comment on the existence or lack of same of the ad or about its plans.
