Democratic U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer and her Republican challenger Carly Fiorina face off in their first debate Wednesday.
Boxer and Fiorina debate at St. Mary's College in Moraga, just east of Oakland.
With unemployment topping 12 percent in California, look for both candidates to talk a lot about job creation. Yesterday, Boxer said she wants to revive the "Made in America" slogan and focus on investing in clean energy and transportation projects. Fiorina, the former head of Hewlett-Packard, has said she wants to reduce business taxes and regulation to create jobs.
