California Election results are in for 2010 and it looks as though females have advanced out of the Republican Party to compete in the fall 2010 elections. The Republic Party for the first time ever voted women to head up the ticket for both governor and the U.S. Senate. Meg Whitman, the former eBay CEO, will run against Democrat and two-term governor and Attorney General Jerry Brown. Carly Fiorina, former Hewlett-Packard CEO, will face Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer.
The California Election results turned out pretty much as expected. Both women were highly favored because of their business knowledge and experience. Great expectations loom for their money management skills to help pull California out of its current financial condition. Some of the decisions that will have to be made should these women be elected in the fall will require guts and gumption, and apparently the majority feels these two fit the bill.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is ineligible to run this year as he has already served two consecutive terms. The California Election results indicate that voters have high hopes for strong leaders in their Republican choices of Whitman and Fiorina. Voters want change and hope to achieve that in November’s election results. The controversy arises in whether or not voters will see these two financial successes as sympathetic to the working class or insensitive because of their personal wealth. The upcoming months may hold plenty of good old fashioned mud slinging politics, and we’ll just have to wait until fall to find out who wins.
