Nancy Reagan endorsed California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina Wednesday.

(CNN) - Nancy Reagan weighed in on the Senate and gubernatorial races in her home state on Wednesday, offering her endorsement of the Republican candidates in both California races.

The former first lady announced her support for Senate candidate Carly Fiorina and gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman a day after the three women sat down together for a private meeting.

Both women said they are honored to have the endorsement of Reagan, a former first lady of California.

"She and I share the same core values, and I am thankful to have her confidence and support behind my campaign for U.S. Senate," Fiorina said.

Fiorina is locked in a tight battle to unseat three-term Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer. Whitman also faces a tough challenge from Attorney General Jerry Brown to succeed Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Whitman also expressed her gratitude to Reagan.

"The legacies of President Reagan and Nancy Reagan have long been an inspiration to me, and their impact on our state and our nation is immeasurable," Whitman said.

Emotional Nancy Reagan unveils statue of former president

WASHINGTON (CNN) - An emotional Nancy Reagan on Wednesday helped unveil a statue of her late husband, President Ronald Reagan, calling the 7-foot figure "a wonderful likeness."

Mrs. Reagan paused during her brief speech at the ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda, appearing to battle emotions as she mentioned her last visit to the marbled hall for Reagan's memorial in June 2004.

"It's nice to be back under happier circumstances," she said.

The statue is one of two from California in the National Statuary Hall Collection donated by states to honor significant figures.

Mrs. Reagan stood arm-in-arm with Rep. John Boehner, the House minority leader from Ohio, to pull down the curtain from the statue. She thanked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California for making the event possible.

In her remarks, Pelosi noted that the former president's statue contains pieces of the Berlin Wall, "as a symbol of his commitment to national security and to his success." The wall was torn down shortly after Reagan left office.
