Republican U.S. Senate candidate and six-year Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina may tout her high-tech resume to the public during the campaign, but it appears there are some sour grapes back at her old stomping grounds, finds California Watch.

According to Federal Election Commission records, HPs Political Action Committee donated $3,000 to Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer. From employees, she received " $2,000 from HP computer scientist Jeffrey Mogul; $1,000 from Executive Vice President Michael Holston; $675 from computer scientist Ahmed Ezzat; $250 from Jason Rodriguez, director of government affairs; $200 from software engineer John Clark; $198 from programmer Thomas Wang; and $50 from Bruce Culbertson, another engineer." All said, that's a total of $7,373.

For Fiorina, she's garnered "$2,400 from Anne Livermore, head of HP’s enterprise business division; and $500 from Steve Huhn, a vice president for sales."

The race, however, is still very close as polls have them neck and neck. The latest had Fiorina ahead.
