ALL of the GOP contenders for the California Senate seat aim at Boxer..not each other….

GOP Senate primary

[ Tom Campbell, left, and Carly Fiorina, with Chuck Devore, have been overshadowed by Steve Poizner and Meg Whitman in governor’s race ]

California Senator Barbara Boxer is not one of my favorite persons….

I don’t know her….. really…..

Never met her…

But I can’t get past a scene that played out last year in which she dressed down a US Army General for not addressing her

the way she wanted to be addressed…..

…….’ Senator  Boxer…..Sir!….’

The Democrats really can’t afford to lose the seat……

But I wouldn’t mind seeing she go back to private life……

The leading Republicans competing for their party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate moved into the final phase of their campaign Friday, largely seeking to ignore each other and focus, instead, on the incumbent they hope to unseat, Democrat Barbara Boxer.

The most recent polls have shown two of the candidates, former Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina and former Rep. Tom Campbell, locked in a tight race for the June 8 primary, with Orange County Assemblyman Chuck DeVore trailing in a distant third.

That dynamic ordinarily might lead the two top contenders to spend the remaining 3½ weeks shredding one another’s records. But, instead, as the three finished their last debate of the campaign Thursday night in Los Angeles, Fiorina launched two new television spots that made no mention of her GOP opponents. Instead, they cast her as a “battle-tested conservative Republican” who would hold Boxer accountable for a “huge expansion of federal government.”

Campbell has his own spot that features unflattering footage of Boxer waving papers in the air and accuses her of profligate spending, arrogance and isolation from average Americans.
