Campaign statements on Fiorina hospitalization

Updated 2:12p.m.: Sen. Barbara Boxer's (D) campaign manager, Rose Kapolczynski, issued the following statement on behalf of the campaign: "We wish Carly Fiorina a speedy recovery and hope she is able to return to her normal schedule soon."

U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina's Chief of Staff Deborah Bowker today issued the following statement:

"Carly learned more than a year and a half ago that she, like millions of women, had breast cancer. After successfully battling cancer, she had reconstructive surgery this summer and remains cancer free today. However, this morning Carly came down with an infection associated with the reconstructive surgery and, as a result, she was admitted to the hospital to receive antibiotics to treat this infection. 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. Carly is looking forward to getting back to her full campaign schedule and to defeating Barbara Boxer on November 2."

I am a Democrat, and obviously hope that Barbara Boxer wins. However, I am also a woman who has had breast cancer, and I send my prayers and best wishes to Carly -- may she recover fast and return to the campaign soon!
