Fiorina Adds $1M For Final Push In Senate Race

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Republican challenger Carly Fiorina has added $1 million from her personal fortune in her campaign to unseat Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.

Fiorina campaign spokeswoman Julie Soderlund said Friday that the former Hewlett-Packard Co. CEO is making a commitment to win in the final days of the campaign. The loan, made Thursday, brings Fiorina’s total contributions this year to $6.5 million.

Fiorina’s loan comes as the race is tightening and as President Barack Obama campaigns in California for the three-term Democratic incumbent.

According to the latest quarterly campaign reports, Boxer had about $6.5 million cash on hand compared to $1.8 million for Fiorina, who is receiving significant help from independent groups.
