(CNN) - California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is in the hospital for an infection related to reconstructive surgery after her battle with breast cancer, Fiorina's campaign announced.
Statement from campaign:
"Carly learned more than a year and a half ago that she, like millions of women, had breast cancer. After successfully battling cancer, she had reconstructive surgery this summer and remains cancer free today. However, this morning Carly came down with an infection associated with the reconstructive surgery and, as a result, she was admitted to the hospital to receive antibiotics to treat this infection. While this will impact her campaign schedule today, Carly is upbeat and her doctors expect her to make a quick and full recovery and be back out on the campaign trail soon. Carly is looking forward to getting back to her full campaign schedule and to defeating Barbara Boxer on November 2."
The campaign for Fiorina's Democratic opponent Sen. Barbara Boxer responded to the news.
"We wish Carly Fiorina a speedy recovery and hope she is able to return to her normal schedule soon," Rose Kapolczynski, Boxer campaign manager said in a statement.
Political differences notwithstanding, I pray you recover fully Mrs. Fiorina.
We will pray for her complete and swift recovery. What a terrible disease!
