Wednesday, 27 Oct 2010 02:00 PM

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is scheduled to be released from the hospital and expects to resume campaigning.

Her campaign issued a statement saying the former Hewlett-Packard Co. chief executive will be released from the hospital Wednesday and will resume her campaign schedule Thursday. Fiorina thanked supporters for their wishes and prayers.

She was admitted Tuesday for an infection associated with her reconstructive surgery after breast cancer. The statement said her treatment was successful.

The 56-year-old candidate was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2009 before she formally announced her run against Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer. She completed chemotherapy and radiation treatments a year ago and had reconstructive surgery in July after having a double mastectomy.
