RadiCalifornia is back.

There is another political ad calling out Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis and suggesting he’s trying to turn Colorado into California: “RadiCalifornia.”

The ad ends with a suggestion to call Polis at his Washington, D.C., congressional office. So, is this an ad about Polis’ gubernatorial campaign or his job as a congressman?

The ad is paid for by State Solutions, Inc., which is a nonprofit issue-advocacy group connected with the Republican Governors Association. The RGA produced the previous “RadiCalifornia” Scrabble ad.

“California has the surf, the beach, the nightlife, the Golden Gate, but California also has high taxes, crazy regulations that destroy jobs and radical ideas like single-payer health care,” the ad says.
