State GOP governor contenders face off tonight

COSTA MESA – The Republicans who want to replace Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger are facing off in their first debate Monday.

State Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman will tangle in Costa Mesa in an hour-long event sponsored by a local Republican group.

The billionaire Whitman has a lead in early polling after spending millions of dollars on advertising. But she has been criticized by Poizner for running a tightly choreographed campaign in which she often keeps her distance from reporters.
