Businesswoman Carly Fiorina, who used to head up HP, is likely to announce her campaign for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Barbara Boxer today, at 10 am, at Earth Friendly Products in Garden Grove.  Below is the press release for the event.

Her GOP opponent, Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, will now find out what it is like to go big game hunting with a BB gun.  Why do his backers think that a by the book conservative can win in blue California?  How silly.  Better men than he have run and lost.  It takes a lot of money to win in California, and DeVore has proven he cannot raise money.

DeVore and Fiorina are tied right now, according to a recent poll, but while he has been running at full speed, she hasn’t.  That changes now – and DeVore is most likely done.
