    Even though Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina previously led two of California’s most iconic technology companies, the two candidates’ business pedigrees weren’t enough to sway voters in the Golden State on Tuesday. -snip- Fiorina’s résumé often worked against her during the election cycle. Boxer hammered Fiorina about her rocky tenure as the CEO of Hewlett-Packard in TV ads, criticizing the former executive for laying off scores of employees, shipping American jobs overseas and securing a cushy severance package before leaving the company. The TV ads reopened the wounds of former HP employees who were casualties of the computer maker’s controversial...

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina stated that her prior remarks about Senator Sen. Barbara Boxer's (D-CA)hair weren’t “a generous thing that I said. And so I swore, from that moment on, that I would never make another remark about anyone’s hair” on Friday’s “Sean Hannity Show.” Fiorina said that she “literally laughed out loud” at fellow GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s remarks about her face, and that she doesn’t really care what Trump thinks about her looks. Fiorina then addressed her comments about Boxer, which she stated, “wasn’t a generous thing that I said. And so I swore, from that...

    Carly Fiorina wants you to look at her face. The superPAC supporting her campaign released a new video, "Faces," hitting back at Donald Trump's recent comments on her appearance..."Ladies, look at this face, and look at all of your faces — the face of leadership," Fiorina opens the video. The video cuts together Fiorina's speech to the Federation of Republican Women in Arizona on Friday with the faces of several women. Fiorina goes on to describe the Republican Party as the "party of women's suffrage" and says the Democratic Party should take note that women "are not a special interest...

Fiorina’s rejoinder came in response to a comment her White House rival made in a Rolling Stone interview published Wednesday. “Look at that face,” said Trump, the GOP front-runner. “Would anyone vote for that?

Instead, McCarthy urged the Senate to take up a short-term House-passed bill which extends federal highway funding for five months, without renewing the Ex-Im Bank charter. He called the House bill the “best option” for Congress before money for highways, bridges and mass transit runs out on Friday. McCarthy’s declaration is a blow not only to the Senate,...

For the greater part of my life, I have lived in a state languishing under two of the more liberal and/or worst US Senators in modern history. Dianne Feinstein, the senior senator by a few months, won her latest reelection by 30 points. She had deftly refused to debate her last opponent, arrogantly confiding to one reporter: “I’m running my own campaign.” Feinstein is barely tolerable compared to her ultra-liberal, retiring counterpart. Junior US Senator Barbara Boxer, a progressive figurehead, claimed that a “baby is a baby when...

For good measure, Boxer said that she "unequivocally" trusts Hillary. David Corn of way-left Mother Jones was surprisingly skeptical, saying that "whether Barbara Boxer trusts her or not," Hillary critics have a point because she "tainted the chain of custody."

The group sent out a fundraising email to supporters Tuesday morning asking for donations to encourage the former diplomat, who now teaches at Stanford University, to run for the open seat. Rice has repeatedly said she won’t run, but the latest Field Poll on the race showed she’d be a formidable candidate if she changes her mind. It found her with 49 percent of...

    **SNIP** After all, a Senate seat is a plum job anywhere, but especially for Democrats in California, where it’s been decades since any of them lost a reelection bid for statewide office. Whoever takes Boxer’s place can expect to become the state’s senior senator after 2018, when the then-85-year-old Dianne Feinstein is also widely expected to retire. But ambitious Democrats should beware: Their eagerness, even greed, could do in their party’s hold on Boxer’s spot. It has happened before in California, and very recently. The field of potential Democratic candidates for Boxer’s slot is large, possibly going beyond obvious prospects...

Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who represent both sides of the party’s ideological spectrum. Boxer, whose fourth term expires at the end of 2016, has a paltry $149,000 in her campaign account, less than almost every other senator facing election next year.

    COVINGTON – U.S. Senator Rand Paul told members of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce on Friday that he is hopeful that legislation which would lower the tax on foreign corporate profits for U.

A similar tax holiday was enacted in 2004. Paul, who was speaking at the chamber’s government forum, said that the legislation probably would not come up for a vote this summer, but could see action at...

    Hillary Clinton knows better than you do how to spend your paycheck. Really she does. Just ask her. Few media have trumpeted that Sen. Clinton exposed her socialist agenda during a speech Monday in San Francisco (which the Associated Press dubbed the "leftiest big city on the Left Coast"). But don't take our word for it. We'll go straight to the horse's mouth. "Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you.
