Submission + - HP's ex-CEO joins Senate Race 1 1

necro81 writes: Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of HP, has announced that she will run as a Republican to unseat California senator Barbara Boxer in next year's mid-term elections. A political newcomer, she plans to run on a platform of lowering taxes, reigning-in government spending, and touting her business experience. As HP's boss, she had a mix of successes (such as a merger with Compaq and spinoff of Agilent) and failures (such as a stock price that fell by half) before being ousted unanimously in 2005. Although her $21 million golden parachute provides her with an early edge in fundraising, she will face a strong primary challenge from assemblyman Chuck DeVore, a staunch social conservative.
