Western Growers endorses Fiorina

Western Growers today endorsed Carly Fiorina for Sen. Barbara Boxer's seat in California, saying the former Hewlett-Packard and AT&T executive is listening to farmers.

A statement from CEO Tom Nassif says Fiorina "understands what it takes to run a business in this state.

"She supports California agriculture and understands how issues like new health care reform regulations, changes in taxation, union-supported 'card check' legislation and many other laws and regulations will harm the ability of California farmers to produce a safe, reliable and affordable supply of the food people eat," Nassif said.

A poll last week by the Public Policy Institute of California indicated a close race, with respondents preferring Boxer 39 percent to 34 percent while 22 percent remain undecided.
