    New in Capitol Weekly

    The following first appeard in Capitol Weekly

    The art of ad buying

    The rumors spread quickly, from one media buyer to another, whispers of a new player in the special election--one going by the name of California Republicans for Public Schools. No one at the Alliance for a Better
    California, the union coalition lined up to oppose Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's initiatives, could even confirm the group's existence, though the new campaign group had supposedly spent much of the last week inquiring about buying television ads across California.
