Re "An ousted pioneer explores a new trail," Aug. 6 The Times' article highlights yet another reason for Americans to vote against John McCain. If he gets his economic advice from people like Phil "Americans are whiners" Gramm, and Carly "there is no job that is America's God-given right anymore" Fiorina, then corporate elitism will be alive and well in a McCain administration. If she's a part of that administration, do you think she'll outsource overseas CIA jobs? Maybe she'll put Blackwater in charge of privatizing the military, and then outsource the war too. Clearly, McCain has no idea what Americans need in terms of domestic policy.

As Democrats launch their general election assault on Mitt Romney, their approach has sounded familiar to those who followed the meteoric rise and fall of Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman, corporate chieftains who lost their Republican bids for senator and governor in California two years ago. Much as Fiorina and Whitman emphasized their business experience, Romney's presidential campaign has presented him to voters as the man to tackle the nation's...

Two of the major Republican candidates aiming to unseat U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer made their case this weekend to the party's most active women, arguing that both Boxer's record and anti-incumbent sentiment nationally have put momentum on their side. Their arguments crystallized their central pitches to party voters before the June primary. Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief making her first bid for elective office, detailed her ascension from receptionist to multimillionaire corporate chief.

Former U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina was named Tuesday as a leader of the national Republican effort to retake the Senate in 2012. Fiorina, who lost to incumbent Sen. Barbara Boxer by 10 percentage points in November, will serve as a vice chairwoman on the National Republican Senatorial Committee. In that role, she will raise money for GOP candidates nationwide and speak publicly on economic issues. She was chief executive of Hewlett-Packard until she was ousted in 2005. "All the things that drove me to run for elected office keep me involved," Fiorina said in an interview.

Republican businesswoman Carly Fiorina formally entered the race for U.S. Senate on Wednesday, issuing a blistering critique of Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer even as she tried to blunt her own primary challenge from the right. Before a small gathering of supporters in a Garden Grove warehouse, Fiorina said her business acumen and real-world experience make her the only viable Republican candidate in the 2010 contest. She mocked Boxer for writing three pieces of legislation during her 17-year tenure and for spending the summer on a book tour instead of meeting with voters at town halls.

Re: Michael Hiltzik's column "Is Fiorina's business resume a good foundation for Senate bid?" Aug. 27: To Hiltzik's question of whether Carly Fiorina's business resume is a good foundation for taking Barbara Boxer's (D-Calif.) Senate seat, my answer is a strong no. In 2004, when the media and others questioned her move to ship Hewlett-Packard jobs overseas, she said that Americans do not have a God-given right to a job. Fiorina's contempt for American workers indicates she's not the person for this job. Kim Monson San Pedro -- It seems the column missed a few facts about Carly Fiorina's tenure at HP. Fact: During her nearly six-year tenure, HP's revenues doubled from $44 billion to $88 billion.

The most cherished American credo is that anyone can grow up and run for high office. Carly Fiorina's candidacy for the U.S. Senate, which she formally announced Wednesday, will put this notion to the test. Specifically: Can someone who has spent the last few years running from her checkered record as a big-business CEO, shown so little interest in politics that she consistently failed to vote and has at best a tenuous grasp of such major issues as healthcare reform prevail in a statewide California election?

Failed California GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina was named on Tuesday as the vice chair of the Republicans' effort to retake the Senate in 2012. Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief who lost to incumbent Sen. Barbara Boxer by 10 points last November, was named the vice chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. "I'm pleased to welcome my friend Carly Fiorina to the NRSC team, where her many business and civic achievements will make her an invaluable leader and fundraiser during this critical election cycle," said the committee chair, Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, in a statement.  "I look forward to working with Carly to elect strong Republican Senators who will finally put a stop to President Obama’s failed tax-and-spend agenda, and instead promote the economic growth and job creation Americans so badly need.

Despite a flood of efforts by outside groups hoping to defeat Barbara Boxer, the three-term Democratic senator significantly outraised her challenger Carly Fiorina and ultimately outspent Fiorina and her allies on the airwaves. In final campaign reports filed with the Federal Election Commission a month after Boxer's victory, the senator reported raising just over $28 million and spending almost all of it over the course of the campaign. Fiorina raised $22.6 million and spent more than $22 million, including a $1-million personal loan to the campaign that was repaid.

Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina framed themselves as the fresh face of the Republican Party, two leaders whose business savvy and gender had equipped them to help craft a new path for the shrinking GOP in blue California. For months, the national spotlight shone brightly on the two former chief executives, whose wealth made them formidable threats to their opponents. But their dual losses on election day ? Whitman by 12 percentage points and Fiorina by 9 ? have raised doubts about their future viability in politics, particularly in California.

If ever there was an election in which Sen. Barbara Boxer's foes appeared to have their chance to defeat her, it was this one. Voters showed an inclination toward sweeping out longtime incumbents, and Boxer's resume included 28 years in Washington. Voters were skeptical about the effectiveness of the Obama administration's programs to recharge the economy, and she was one of the fiercest defenders of the federal stimulus bill and the new healthcare law. Californians said they were looking for leaders with economic expertise and an ability to create jobs, and she was a senator best known for ideological crusades on social issues, running against an opponent who was the first woman to run a Fortune 20 company.

The Republican wave crashing across the nation stopped at the California border on Tuesday, as Jerry Brown won the governorship and U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer claimed a victory that would send her back to Washington for a fourth term. The veteran politicians, Democratic icons for decades, jumped out to early leads over wealthy former corporate chiefs Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina, who were making their first forays into public life, trying to ride into office on national sourness about incumbents, the economy and President Obama's administration.

Republican Senate nominee Carly Fiorina ended her campaign much as she started it, arguing that her business background had prepared her to come to the rescue of more than 2 million unemployed Californians and that, after Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer's three decades of public service, it was time to give someone else a chance. In the midst of her last dash from Sacramento to San Diego, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive wound her way through a buzzing Republican Party phone bank in downtown Pasadena, exchanging hugs and handshakes while scooping up a few live voter calls.

Buffeted by advertising, besieged by phone calls, buried in campaign mailers, California voters on Tuesday will close out an election for the history books, its massive outlay part of a Republican effort to ride a national wave of enthusiasm and a Democratic attempt to turn out voters less motivated this year than in the landmark presidential election of 2008. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent by candidates and those on both sides of ballot measures to draw in or repulse voters, and the efforts continued at a frantic pace Saturday.

Candidates for governor and the U.S. Senate hopscotched around the state Friday, rallying their parties' supporters and urging them to vote as election day draws near. In the governor's race, Republican Meg Whitman swept through the Central Valley seeking to motivate the region's rich trove of Republican voters ? and getting inadvertent help from former Gov. Gray Davis, a Democrat. Davis had told the Sacramento Bee on Thursday that the next governor would be forced to ask voters to renew temporary tax hikes they approved last year to help balance the budget.
