ABSTRACT
The article discusses the California gubernatorial election campaign of former eBay chief executive officer (CEO) and Republican Meg Whitman. Despite Whitman's calls for fiscal responsibility in administration of the California state government, the article asserts that Whitman has spent more money on her California election campaign than former U.S. Vice President Al Gore did in his 2000 presidential election campaign. Whitman's close race with opponent and former California governor Jerry Brown is said to belie the value of the money she has invested to succeed in the election.
