Senator Barbara Boxer continues to hold a very slight lead over former HP CEO Carly Fiorina in California. These two women have gone at each other pretty hard, and the polling gap is within the margin of error. Rasmussen has Boxer up by three points, which has been reflected pretty much all along. Fiorina has actually stayed closer to Boxer than Meg Whitman has stayed to Jerry Brown. The debate featured Boxer really homing in on Fiorina’s record as CEO of HP, where she laid off thousands of workers, and shipped jobs overseas. She also made quite a bundle of money doing so. Fiorina has whacked Boxer around on the arrogance issue, as well as on taxes, regulation, and extreme environmental views. From the LA Times.
“She is for more taxes, she is for more spending, she is for more regulation, she is also for big government and elite extreme environmental groups,” said Fiorina, who said her rival had accomplished little in the Senate because she is “one of the most bitterly partisan members.”
“Her record is long on talk and very short on achievement,” Fiorina said.
One of the key races in the country, and one of the closest. If Boxer gets beat here then you know it is going to be a real big night for Republicans.
Fiorina appeared on Fox Sunday with Chris Wallace, and like Republican Kirk on Meet the Press, just refused to answer on how she planned to balance the federal budget. Wallace was as frustrated with her non-answers as David Gregory was with candidate Kirk in Illinois. For a Party talking up deficit reduction in a big way you would think they would have a better answer than hummuna hummuna hummuna when asked what programs specifically they will cut to achieve balance. They just won’t answer.
