TPM had called Bellasalma in reference to a Daily Caller story about the NOW endorsement. That story read:

Bellasalma said that while calling Whitman a "whore" was a poor choice of words, the description was accurate. "The very troubling issue that is embedded in that call is what prompted the description of Meg as a 'whore' is basically that she sold out Californians for an endorsement and a $450,000 independent expenditure campaign," she said.

Bellasalma confirmed to TPM that Daily Caller writer Caroline May had accurately described her statements about Whitman.

The TPM Poll average shows Brown ahead of Whitman by a slight margin of 45.9% to 44.4%.
