Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The Boxer-Fiorina debate tonight was pretty much a draw until the closing statements when Carly Fiorina went a bit flat and Barbara Boxer hit her stride with an emotional declaration of the differences between the two.

Republican Fiorina had been aggressive in attacking Boxer's senatorial record during the debate but chose to close with a description of Californians as being full of "anger, frustration and even fear" and saying, "We can turn this nation around." But she didn't directly attack Boxer.

The senator, however, talked about "a very clear choice" and slammed Fiorina on her actions as CEO of Hewlett-Packard, saying she "laid off 30,000 workers and shipped jobs to China," her opposition to abortion and what Boxer described as Fiorina's ties to "a wealthy, wealthy few" and "big oil and big coal."
