Meg Whitman and the ghost of Pete Wilson

Politico's Ben Smith spotlights the new (minute-long!) ad from California GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, who's been forced to the right after losing much of her lead over GOP rival Steve Poizner. Her immigration policy is explained, in her own words, over an image of a border wall.

On immigration, I will secure our border. And I'll send in the national guard if necessary. I say no driver's licenses, no sanctuary cities, and absolutely no amnesty. Period.

Up to now, Whitman had been able to introduce herself to voters without showing a hand on conservative issues. Now, she's reminding me of this.
