This Was the Assessment of One Senate Debate Combatant
I just left the St. Mary’s campus in Moraga after my debate with Carly Fiorina. And let me tell you something: I feel great!
Tonight’s debate showed what a clear choice the people of California have in this election.
It’s a choice between someone who’s fighting for jobs, day in and day out, right here in America — versus someone who, when she had her chance, laid off 30,000 employees and shipped jobs overseas.
It’s a choice between someone who’s working hard to see the words “Made in America” again — versus someone who, during her time at HP, stamped “Made in China” and “Made in India” on her products.
On issue after issue — creating jobs, defending a woman’s right to choose, fighting climate change, protecting our beautiful coast, and so many other important issues — the choice couldn’t be clearer.
I feel great about how the debate went tonight because it gave the people of California a chance to see that clear choice for themselves.
I’m proud of my record of more than 1,000 accomplishments for the people of California, including the first federal after school program and improved veterans health care. I look forward to continuing to share my vision for the future with the voters over the next two months.
Before the debate started, knowing that all of you were standing with me gave me such a boost of confidence. Late this afternoon, Rose told me that we had already passed our initial ambitious goal of 10,000 individual donations in today’s “100,000 Strong for Boxer” effort.
Now I’m pleased to report that we’ve already reached a total of 12,000 donations so far today — and over 100,000 total grassroots donors to date! — and there are still two more hours until our midnight deadline. That’s so terrific!
So let’s keep the momentum going — and make our “100,000 Strong for Boxer” effort an even bigger success.
Please make a contribution now, of whatever you can afford.
This has been such an amazing day for our campaign — with tonight’s debate, and with today’s all-day “100,000 Strong for Boxer” online fundraising drive.
Let’s finish the day off strong.
Thank you so much for standing with me, today and every day.
On to victory!
Barbara Boxer,? U.S. Senator
