Meg Whitman speaks in Santa Barbara County

Republican candidate Meg Whitman will speak about her comprehensive plan to cut government spending this afternoon at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History as she continues her campaign to be California's first female governor.

A new poll shows Meg Whitma's lead in the Republican race for California governor has fallen 23 points after facing a wave of attack ads from her opponent Steve Poizner.

The newest survey from the Public Policy Institute of California shows Whitman now leads Poizner 38 percent to 29 percent among Republicans who said they were likely to vote in the June 8 primary. In March, she had 61 percent support compared with Poizner's 11 percent.

The poll has margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points. KSBY's Ariel Wesler will have a complete report tonight on KSBY News at 6.
