Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

When Sen. Barbara Boxer and challenger Carly Fiorina walked onto the stage at St. Mary's College to shake hands before their debate, the height differential was immediately evident.

Republican Fiorina is at least a half-foot taller than Boxer, but when the two stood behind their podiums, the height differential vanished because Boxer, as usual, was standing on a box.

The two lost no time going on the attack. Fiorina, going first, slapped at Boxer's performance in Washington, saying, "the results of her policies have been devastating." Boxer immediately hit Fiorina on her tenure at Hewlett-Packard, especially exporting jobs to overseas plants.
