Carly Fiorina, the Republican Senate candidate from California, will travel to the Middle East over the Labor Day weekend to shore up her foreign policy credentials.

Marty Wilson, her campaign manager, said the candidate wants to be updated on the region, according to the Associated Press.

The trip is funded by the Republican Jewish Coalition, AP reported.

Fiorina, the wealthy former Hewlett-Packard executive, is facing off against Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) in one of this year's most competitive Senate races.
