Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is attempting to win over California Republicans by attacking two of their strongest dislikes — incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer and a federal government she says is broken.
Fiorina is the former Hewlett-Packard CEO making her first run at public office. She introduced herself to the state's GOP convention Saturday with a movie called Hot Air, which depicts Boxer as enamored with her own image and out of touch with Californians.
She did not mention her two Republican challengers in the state's June primary.
Fiorina then assailed a federal government she says is detached and arrogant. She positioned herself as an outsider who knows how to balance budgets and create jobs, citing her rise from receptionist to CEO to show she had succeeded outside of politics.
