Fiorina will first run for the Republican Party nomination, then if she wins the party nod she will take on incumbent senator Barbara Boxer, who will be seeking her fourth term in office. The early speculation is that Fiorina is a heavy favourite to win the nomination, but unseating Boxer would be a tougher task.
As one of the first women to win a prominent role in Silicon Valley, Fiorina could again become a trailblazer by becoming the first former tech executive to win a Senate seat in California.
We're guessing Fiorina doesn't want voters to base their decisions to heavily on her past business performance, however. Her time at HP was tumultuous, to say the least.
