Fiorina Beats Infection, Resumes Campaign to Beat Boxer
Following an overnight stay at an undisclosed Los Angeles hospital, Republican Senate nominee Carly Fiorina will get back to her campaign to unseat Democrat Barbara Boxer today, according to the LA Times.
Fiorina had been hospitalized on Tuesday for treatment for an infection that had something to do with the reconstructive surgery she underwent this summer following treatment for breast cancer.
With the election looming just five days from now, Fiorina has her work cut out for her in order to defeat the incumbent Boxer. The campaign went ahead without Fiorina while she was hospitalized, and Boxer may have cut her rival some slack; during an appearance Tuesday at a Los Angeles fundraiser that included guest speaker First Lady Michelle Obama, Boxer adopted a gentler tone when discussing her opponent. Currently Boxer remains ahead of Fiorina in the polls.
