With about 7% of the vote counted from around the state, Whitman is earning 65.6% of the Republican vote, compared to 25.3% for Steve Poizner.

Wow! Now JimRob will be able to get rid of the incessant push for Devore, stop the trash against Fiorina.
The key is to wipe Boxer’s ass, with whatever you got. Looks like we’ve got Fiorina.
My husband and I did not vote for either Poizner or Whitman - them being pro choice and all.
I wrote in my husband’s name for governor! LOL
I voted for Chuck but I will be voting for Fiorina in the General. Boxer is among the worst of the worst.
Don’t you mean “whip”?
but Meg Whitman is just another Wilson clone , another mega rich elitist embezzler
and then there's Brown , another Obamunista clone [/cynical pragmatism]
There are no words. A failed CEO and a sheep in wolf’s clothing.
Oh, goody. Another race where we'll have 2 dems in the general.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
You are one smart cookie to vote that way.
I saw Fiorina on Fox yesterday and she was asked by Greta about her performance at H-P. She had a very good answer...paraphrasing...it is good that businesses have statistics on record and then she rattled off all the
progress made by H-P during her job as CEO. I was impressed!
She should make a commercial out of her answer. This lady is 100 times more intelligent than Boxer. Hope she beats Boxer.
