Carly Fiorina Already Attacking Barbara Boxer for “Call Me Senator” Comment

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Barbara Boxer, Carly Fiorina

When Barbara Boxer rudely interrupts Brigadier General Michael Walsh to request she not be called “Ma’am”, Colonel Jessep comes to his aid.

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina who is an unannounced candidate for California United States Senate is ALREADY going after Senator Barbara Boxer.

The issue?

The “Call Me Senator, not Ma’am” Flap.

Ex-Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiornia wasn’t at GOP confab this weekend (she has another week or so of radiation treatments for her breast cancer), but she had a table set up and signs all around. A hat sitting on the iCarly table previewed one line of attack the campaign — should it emerge — will take against Sen. Barbara Boxer.

The sentence on the hat reads: “Could you say Senator instead of ma’am?” It’s a reference to Boxer’s exchange with Brigadier General Michael Walsh, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in June…..

And, the latest polling has Fiorina edging up on the incumbent Senator Boxer.

Watch this race as it starts to heat up. Boxer will be in a fight for the first time in over a decade.

Poll Watch: Barbara Boxer Leads Both GOP Challengers in California Senate Race But Falls Below 50 Per Cent

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Barbara Boxer, Carly Fiorina, Chuck DeVore, Polling

Some good news for the California GOP in the latest Rasmussen poll.
A new Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 survey of the contest in California shows Boxer now beating former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina by 10 points 49% to 39%. Four percent (4%) like some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are not sure how they will vote.

In July, Boxer led Fiorina by just four but had a 47% to 38% lead in March.

Against state Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, it’s a nine-point race, with Boxer ahead 46% to 37%. Seven percent (7%) prefer another candidate, and 10% are undecided.

Although Democrat incumbent Senator Barbara Boxer is ahead of both Republicans Carly Fiorina and Chuck DeVore, she falls below the “magic” 50 per cent polling number for incumbents. Any incumbent POL who falls below 50 per cent is considered vulnerable.

Should Fiorina or DeVore emerge from next June’s GOP primary election unscathed by intra-party squabbling, look for a more competitive race than Boxer has ever seen.

More Signs that California Senator Barbara Boxer Is Worried As Democrats Go After Carly Fiorina

There are MORE signs that Senator Boxer and California Democrats are worried about Carly Fiorina.

A Boxer puff piece from Marin County, although Boxer moved to Oakland in 2006.

And, frank realization that California Assemblyman Chuck DeVore has not and will NOT be able to raise the campaign money to come close to defeating Carly Fiorina in next June’s GOP Primary election.

If you look at the graphic above you will see that DeVore’s campaign for the U.S. Senate is heavily in debt.  He owes over $106,000!  Ruh-roh!

And it turns out that DeVore’s Assembly campaign accounts are also in debt!  See the figures below.

DeVore in ‘08 (active)
Cash (6/30/09) = $2,064.65
Debt (6/30/09) = $31,782.87 (of which $7,800 are loans from himself made in
2009, the rest is accrued expenses)

DeVore in ‘04 (active)
Cash (6/30/09) = $224.93
Debt (6/30/09) = $19,308.51 (of which $18,850 are loans from himself made in
2003, the rest is accrued expenses)

Seriously, when is someone in DeVore’s circle going to look him in the eye and say “Chuck, it just isn’t in the cards bro…time to quit!”

Then, there is a Carly Fiorina puff piece and a retort that Fiorina’s web efforts are not up to stuff (quite the rage on the Left and RIGHT side of Twitter).

Flap says NO to Boxer and the Boxer shorts as the REAL 2010 Senate campaign begins – Boxer Vs. Fiorina.

California Senator Barbara Boxer Worried As Democrats Go After Carly Fiorina

Posted Posted in Barbara Boxer, Carly Fiorina
Web Ad from Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee

United States Senator Barbara Boxer must be worried about her re-election prospects. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is already going after former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina who is an unannounced POTENTIAL candidate.

It is obvious that the Democrats are worried about Boxer who never really has been tested in a statewide general election. All of her previous Republican opponents were underfunded or scandal-ridden pols who had no chance of winning.

Senator Boxer’s predecessor, Democrat Alan Cranston, retired in 1992. She won the open seat contest in the US Senate elections that year. She defeated Bruce Herschensohn, a conservative television political commentator, by 4.9 percentage points after a last-minute revelation that Herschensohn had attended a strip club.[14] In 1998, she was re-elected for a second term, beating Matt Fong, a former state treasurer, by 10 percentage points.[15] She had decided to retire in 2004 but says she decided to run to “fight for the right to dissent” against conservatives like Tom DeLay. After facing no primary opposition in the 2004 election, Boxer defeated GOP candidate Bill Jones, a former California Secretary of State, by a margin of 20 percentage points.[16]

A September 2009 poll places her approval rating at 46% and her disapproval rating at 44%.[17] A March 2009 field poll found voters about evenly divided on Boxer’s re-election, with 43% inclined to support her and 44% leaning against. [18]

California has been represented by Boxer for three terms and she has NO noteworthy accomplishments, unlike her female cohort Senator Dianne Feinstein who is extremely popular.

Is Boxer vulnerable?

Well, California unemployment is high and the Democrats have been in power in California for decades, only held in check by a sometime Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. California voters may be looking for a change and that is why Boxer and the national Democrat Party are worried —> hence the attack ad for a POTENTIAL candidate.

Stay tuned…..
