Southern California -- this just in

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.
