California Likes Republican Senate Candidate Fiorina, But Not Her Anti-Abortion Stance
Politico: Fiorina faces challenge on abortion, by Emily Schultheis:
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO and Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is drawing almost the same support from California voters as incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, according to recent polls.
Fiorina’s position on abortion? Not so much.
A full 71 percent of Californians favor either keeping the state’s liberal abortion laws intact or making abortion easier to obtain, according to new data from the Field Poll. The same percentage said they support the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade.
That’s a potential obstacle for Fiorina as she attempts to become the first anti-abortion candidate to win a California race at the top of the ticket since 1986. . . .
