Whitman & Fiorina | Two High Tech CEOS Win GOP Runs

RedTracker| “Career politicians in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., be warned because you now face your biggest nightmare: Two businesswomen who know how to create jobs, balance budgets and get things done,” Ms. Whitman said in her victory speech Tuesday night in Universal City, Calif.

Whitman is referring to herself, who will face veteran politician Jerry Brown as the Democrat seeking the governorship he once held in California. Carly Fiorina will face Democratic incumbent senator Barbara Boxer. 

Ms. Whitman will face a proven politician in Mr. Brown, now the state’s attorney general.

As governor from 1975 to 1983, he earned the nickname “Governor Moonbeam” for his quirky and liberal stances, but later redefined himself as a centrist mayor of Oakland who turned the woebegone city around economically. via WSJ
