Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is maintaining the federal government's $862 billion stimulus package did little for job-creation.

The former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard Co., tells ABC's "Good Morning America," she believes the Obama administration's stimulus policy has been a failure and that it must work harder to ease double-digit unemployment.

Fiorina is challenging incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer in a state with 12.4 percent unemployment. Fiorina said Friday that passing stimulus legislation "isn't the way to create jobs."

Federal data analyzed by The Associated Press show that Hewlett-Packard has been paid $22.5 million so far in stimulus money distributed to cities, school districts, hospitals and universities across the country.
