Question of the Day
SACRAMENTO | Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is scheduled to be released from the hospital and expects to resume campaigning.
Her campaign issued a statement saying the former Hewlett-Packard Co. chief executive would be released from the hospital Wednesday and will resume her campaign schedule Thursday. Mrs. Fiorina thanked supporters for their wishes and prayers.
She was admitted Tuesday for an infection associated with her reconstructive surgery after breast cancer. The statement said her treatment was successful.
The 56-year-old candidate received a breast cancer diagnosis in February 2009 before she formally announced her run against Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Democrat. She completed chemotherapy and radiation treatments a year ago and had reconstructive surgery in July after having a double mastectomy.
Sheriff wants to be family man, not mayor
CHICAGO | In a surprising about-face, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart said Wednesday that he won’t run for mayor of Chicago.
Mr. Dart told a morning news conference that the pressures of campaigning — and of being the mayor — would make it impossible for him to be a good husband and father to five children.
“If I put politics ahead of my children … that is something I couldn’t live with,” Mr. Dart said.
The sheriff previously told many people he would run and was considered a leading contender to replace Mayor Richard M. Daley, who announced in September that he would not run for a seventh term in February. Other potential candidates include former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun and state Sen. James Meeks.
Among the few candidates who have formally announced their intentions to run are City Clerk Miguel Del Valle, state Sen. Rickey Hendon and Gery Chico, a former Chicago school board chairman.
