Washington (CNN) - 2010 California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina was named the National Republican Senatorial Committee's new vice chair on Tuesday.
"I look forward to working with Carly to elect strong Republican Senators who will finally put a stop to President Obama's failed tax-and-spend agenda, and instead promote the economic growth and job creation Americans so badly need," Committee Chairman, Texas Sen. John Cornyn said in a statement released Tuesday.
New York (CNNMoney.com) - If former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina's bid to become the next senator from California succeeds, she will owe a giant "thank you" to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber has pumped $4.9 million into the California Senate race to help Fiorina, a Republican, defeat Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, according to the Sunlight Foundation, a nonprofit that advocates for transparency in government.
(CNN) - Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer continues to maintain a slight advantage over her opponent, Republican Carly Fiorina, in California's Senate race, according to a new poll.
A Field Poll released Friday shows Boxer with a 49-41 percent lead over Fiorina, a former Hewlett Packard CEO. The survey was conducted October 14-26.
Denver (CNN) - Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina may have spent the night in the hospital, but her campaign didn't break stride launching a new attack Tuesday on opponent Barbara Boxer.
In a biting new Web video, the Fiorina campaign calls Boxer a "hypocrite" for holding a town hall event at Cisco Systems and accepting campaign contributions from its CEO. The spot alleges Cisco has outsourced jobs – something Boxer repeatedly attacks Fiorina for doing as CEO of Hewlett Packard.
(CNN) - Tuesday yielded good news for Democrats in California with a new poll that shows the nominees for Governor and Senator leading their Republican opponents.
In the Suffolk University poll, attorney general and former Gov. Jerry Brown leads former eBay CEO Meg Whitman by 8 percentage points, 50 percent to 42 percent among likely voters. Five percent supported the third party candidates in the race.
Washington (CNN) - National Republicans are dropping more cash into California's close contest for the Senate.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee says it's injecting $3 million in ad spending into California this week on behalf of GOP Senate nominee Carly Fiorina. They say that brings to nearly $8 million the amount the NRSC has spent on behalf of the former Hewlett-Packard CEO.
The ad buy comes as a Los Angeles Times/USC poll indicated that three-term Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer held a 50 to 42 percent advantage over Fiorina among likely California voters.
