Former Hewlett-Packard Chief Executive Carly Fiorina will formally announce her run for the U.S. Senate this morning at a news conference in Garden Grove.

"Throughout my career I've brought people together, and I've solved problems," Fiorina said in a statement. "And that is what is needed in our government today. People who are willing to set aside ego and partisanship and instead work to develop solutions to our problems. . As California's senator, economic recovery and fiscal accountability will be my priorities."
Fiorina will face off against Assemblyman Chuck DeVore (R-Irvine) for the Republican nomination. The GOP candidate would compete against incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, who is seeking a fourth term.
"I look forward to engaging Carly Fiorina on the issues Californians care about: out-of-control federal debt, soaring government spending on bailouts and stimulus, a pending government takeover of healthcare, and Barbara Boxer's huge energy-tax increase disguised as cap-and-trade," DeVore said in a statement.
