Fiorina’s chief of staff Deborah Bowker said in a statement that Fiorina was hospitalized and is receiving antibiotics.

“While this will impact her campaign schedule today, Carly is upbeat and her doctors expect her to make a quick and full recovery and be back out on the campaign trail soon,” Bowker said. “Carly is looking forward to getting back to her full campaign schedule and to defeating Barbara Boxer on November 2."

Fiorina, 56, was diagnosed with breast cancer last year and underwent reconstructive surgery this summer. The former Hewlett Packard chief executive faces a tough race against incumbent Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is currently leading by a narrow margin in the polls.
