(CNN) - California Sen. Barbara Boxer said Thursday that voters in her state want to solve the problem of illegal immigration – but don't want to follow in Arizona's footsteps.
"They [voters] much prefer comprehensive immigration reform and they understand that if every state decides to do their own laws, we'll be in chaos," Boxer said in an interview that aired tonight on CNN's John King, USA.
A number of national polls suggest that a majority of Americans support Arizona's controversial immigration law.
Boxer also said she was "perplexed" and "stunned" when she saw her Republican senatorial opponent, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, discussing her [Boxer's] hair on an open microphone before a television interview.
"God, what is that hair?" a laughing Fiorina said, while quoting a friend who had recently seen Boxer on television. "So yesterday."
Boxer said her first reaction was to call her campaign manager and ask how she should respond to inquiries from the press about Fiorina's dig.
"And she said: 'We're just going to say, let Carly Fiorina talk about hair, we're going to talk about jobs,'" Boxer told CNN's Jessica Yellin, who is filling in for John King. "And that's the way I've handled it, I've tried to have a sense of humor about it, frankly, because we've all had our bad hair days, that's for sure."
