Wednesday Must Read: Illness Sidelines Fiorina’s Campaign; Whitman Booed By Women

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. Republican gubernatorial candidate Carly Fiorina spent last night in the hospital because of a severe infection related to surgery she had for breast cancer. The LA Times reports that Fiorina hopes that she can resume campaigning later this week. The illness is a setback for the ex-Hewlett Packard CEO, because polls show that she needs to make up ground on Barbara Boxer before Election Day. The hospitalization also reminds voters that Fiorina is campaigning to overturn Obama’s health-care reform law, even though it will provide coverage to more than 30 million uninsured Americans.
