Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) slammed Carly Fiorina Wednesday, shortly after Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz announced that the former Hewlett-Packard CEO would be his running mate if he wins the nomination.

{mosads}In a call with reporters, the retiring California senator predicted that Fiorina will not get very far.

“Well, I think that the most accurate description of that team would be mean and meaner,” she said.

“He wants to ship immigrants out of America, and she’s already shipped jobs out of America. And they’re the perfect duo. Seriously. I would predict, actually, that this Fiorina merger will be just as successful as her last one at HP.” 

Boxer also gloated about her 2010 Senate victory over Fiorina. 

“The people in California rejected Carly Fiorina in a year that was a very tough year for Democrats, believe me. We had the worst recession since the Great Depression, and she tried to pin it on me. She was a very mean opponent, and the bottom line is they rejected her, and now she’s coming back again — it’s like a bad dream.”
