SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California was once an afterthought in the battle for control of Congress but it is now a top target for deep-pocketed political action committees seeking to win districts stretching from the Central Valley to San Diego.
Since an independent panel recast California's political boundaries two years ago, the state's newly drawn congressional districts have transformed the state into the nation's most competitive House landscape. The races have attracted more than $45 million in outside spending so far, more than has gone into any other state.
With less than a week until Election Day, spending is surging as more than 80 outside groups and independent super PACs seek to sway the makeup of the nation's largest congressional delegation.
