Senator Boxer needs no introduction. For years she has been one of the progressive movement's boldest leaders -- on climate change, on healthcare, on women's rights, and on so much more she has been a voice for the people.
Now, Senator Boxer is locked in a tough reelection fight with Tea Party Republican Carly Fiorina, a failed corporate executive who is writing million-dollar checks to fund her own campaign. Carly claims to have created jobs as a former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, but that conveniently ignores the tens of thousands of Americans laid-off, fired or who had their jobs outsourced overseas under her failed "leadership." Let's face it, when Carly was in charge, HP lost 2/3's of its shareholder value. Neither California nor the rest of the nation can afford leadership like Carly Fiorina.
The U.S. Senate needs Heroes who fight the big banks, insurance companies and Wall Street. Who stand up for everyday Americans against corporate interests. America needs Senator Barbara Boxer.
