In a grilling of an interview by Wolf Blitzer on CNN's The Situation Room, Carly Florina, running against U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer in an election battle for Boxer's California seat in The Senate, said that she understood and supports Arizona's controversial illegal immigration law.

This is a very good litmus test. Any politician who doesn’t support this law has exposed themselves as being unwilling to enforce immigration law.
Good for her.
I live in California; since she support this legislation; then I have no problem voting for her in the primary.
I was watching Fox 11 News here in LA last night and all they were bitching about was the Arizona law and how “Most Californians support amnesty” hmmm, they NEVER interviewed me and the only ones who want amnesty for illegals are progressives who see them as Dem voters. I was never a fan of Fiorina but now that she has said this she gets one good mark in my book
Vote for the best and proven conservative in the race...
I seem to recall that Prop 187 to deny state services to illegal aliens passed by 60% to 40% back in 1994. Of course it was subsequently overturned by the judicial tyranny there.
Chuck DeVore is a good man. It’s too bad he’s not a strong candidate.
Even Tom Campbell, one of her opponents and constitutional lawyer, said the law is constitutional. I half expected him to bad-mouth it. Good for the both of them.
so she stands for the law good for her.
Now maybe we need to get those who defend illegal activity on record as saying so.
As for the MSM they make me sick, they are not bias they’re corrupt .
It’s sickening to see that we do not have a fair and free media now.
Will Wolf now grill the rats on their support of illegals, notice the word ILLEGALS and will he get them to say that illegals should not be here as they are breaking the law
In fact, she just got herself ELECTED.
I understand and support it.
I don't know why the anti-illegal candidates don't pound away at how unfair it is to those who come here legally and play by the rules.
From what I've read, coming here legally is a pain in the neck. They should not be punished for going through the bureaucracy and waiting in line, while those who cheat get rewarded.
I think we have entered the litmust test election.
Fiorina is already in the idiot class.
all candidates must be:
build border fence
traditional marriage (NO civil union BS)
pro-abortion restrictions (I give on this to use the ratchet effect to our advantage)
English is the official language
Strong US military (do ask do expell)
You're singing my song. Run for office, I'll vote for you.
And I agree. I'm looking for candidates who support those positions without batting an eye. Flat out.
CA is ripe for smaller govt...but more (l)ibertarian on social issues.
A true fiscal and Constitutional, 10th Amendment "conservative" can win state-wide here for federal office.
If such a litmus test is imposed, they cannot and you'll get a fiscal/constitutional liberal along with the social liberal...all in the same Dem package.
The soon to be granted Blanket Amnesty will fill the polls with more Democrat supporters.
I guess we’ll see won’t we?
Carly Fiorina is not a strong candidate. She's an empty-suited lightweight, a product of what her handlers tell her to say. She's only in the conversation because she has money, but thus far she trails Campbell.
DeVore is a fighter who has defeated well-funded woman before when he first won his assembly seat. He is the proven fiscal conservative champion with a military background and ties to the Reagan era.
Once Republicans understand we have one and only one chance to elect a proven conservative, they must back him or continue to swim in irrelevance. 2010 will be a lost opportunity in California if we nominate squishes and risk Republicans staying home again (figuratively speaking) in November.
Or, you could just vote for the actual conservative in the race: Chuck DeVore
DeVore is MUCH more conservative, a Veteran, and he has a much better voting record.
I will keep your advice in mind.
Some good news in California.
Reading the article, apparently Fiorina says she understands Arizona’s law, but did NOT say she supports it. The author is inferring that because Fiorina did not condemn the law. Still, it beats Cardinal Mahony’s insane lust for more plantation workers, and Senator Boxer’s placement of more liberal voters above the security and prosperity of America. I presume Campbell doesn’t like the bill, either, because his Saudi masters can’t import more terrorists into America.
The writer's description of her trying to weasel around the question is probably accurate, I've seen the same thing in other supposed "moderates". Its something that comes with not really knowing what you believe or why you believe it.
She knows she is running for office in a heavily latino state and fears to say anything that goes against supposed orthodoxy that will draw fire from the press. But look, if you're not a Democrat, you're going to draw fire. If you don't accept orthodoxy, you're going to draw fire. The only proper response is to do a Palin and go bold. Heck yes I support the bill. Most people do, and for good reason.
I'm so tired of electing politicians who don't know what they stand for other than topping off their resume.
