Carly Fiorina: Out of Hospital, Back on Campaign Trail

Photo Courtesy - Carly for California(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) -- One day after California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina left the hospital after being treated for an infection following reconstructive surgery, the breast cancer survivor thanked opponent Barbara Boxer for her well wishes, but said the Democratic incumbent's record was one of failed policies.

Calling the three-term senator a "career politician," Fiorina said Boxer also needed to be held accountable for policies which she said were contributing to losses in American manufacturing. For her part, the 69-year-old Boxer has criticized Fiorina -- the former Hewlett-Packard chief -- as being a poor CEO who laid off more than 30,000 workers, brought company stock down and was fired.

Fiorina has been endorsed by a number of prominent Republican politicians, including Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. Palin, too, has endorsed Fiorina, but during a recent visit to California, the former Alaska governor didn't campaign for the senate hopeful.

Fiorina underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy last year. She has said she is cancer-free.
