American Crossroads GPS v. Boxer

The Los Angeles Times reports:

A conservative group with ties to former Bush adviser Karl Rove announced Wednesday they have Barbara Boxer in their sites.

The Crossroads GPS, announced they would hit the airwaves with a new "issue ad" focused on Boxer and her support for cuts to Medicare that were part of President Obama's health-care overhaul.

Crossroads said ads will run in Los Angeles, beginning Wednesday, for one week. The group says it spent $1 million to buy the TV airtime.

Crossroads GPS and its affiliate, American Crossroads, both receive advice and fundraising support from Rove. During a campaign stop at a beachfront cafe in Santa Monica Wednesday, Boxer said the group's interest in her race was evidence that a Fiorina win would mean a return to the policies of George W. Bush.

The ad -- which has a theme similar to an attack on Sestak -- is here:
