Carly Fiorina appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, where the conversation mostly focused on balancing the federal budget. Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, is in a tight battle with incumbent democratic Senator Barbara Boxer in California.
California is a traditionally blue state, but this year’s senatorial contest appears to be surprisingly close. According to the latest Real Clear Politics poll Senator Boxer holds a 2.3 percent lead from 47% to 45.7%.
Much is at stake as, to gain a majority in the Senate, Republicans must hold all 18 of their seats on this year's ballots while picking up 10 of the 19 Democratic seats.
