Whitman to talk jobs in Modesto

Meg Whitman, one of two Republican candidates for governor, will tour a Modesto business this afternoon and discuss her plan to create jobs in California.

The former eBay executive will be at San Joaquin Equipment, 2413 Crows Landing Road, about 4 o'clock.

Whitman is competing with another former Silicon Valley executive, Steve Poizner, for the GOP nomination.
