Carly Fiorina’s campaign has released a new web video, “Truthiness,” that shows footage of Sen. Barbara Boxer making claims — and then fact checks those claims.
In other California news, Palm Springs newspaper The Desert Sun endorsed Fiorina today, saying, “Fiorina’s business background and sharp conservative views would serve California better than the liberal Boxer.” Boxer owns a house in the Palm Springs area.
And at RealClearPolitics, Sean Trende shows that polls giving Boxer a large lead are also assuming a big Democratic turnout. While that might have been true in 2008, when Democrats were excited about the presidential election, the momentum appears to have shifted to the GOP this cycle.
“The pollsters showing a comfortable Boxer lead are showing electorates that are similar to 2008,” Trende noted. “On the other hand, the pollsters who are showing a tight race see an electorate more like 2004 or 2006.”
