News outlets were quick to call it last night for incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer, but it took until this morning for her challenger, Republican Carly Fiorina, to publicly concede the race.

Speaking to reporters, Fiorina said she made the call to congratulate Boxer, and called for Democrats and Republicans to set aside their differences and work together, according to the Sacramento Bee.

"I hope all will come together," she said, adding that members of Congress should "redouble their efforts" to make sure that all people have a chance to live the American Dream.
