Fiorina's fundraising kickoff

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina hasnít officially declared her intention to run for the Senate in California, but leading Senate Republicans are holding a fundraiser for her campaign next month, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO.

Fiorina will be feted by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) -- among other GOP senators -- along with big-name GOP lobbyists Charlie Black and Fred Malek at the $500/person soiree at Bistro Bis on November 17.

Notably absent from the list of GOP Senate guests on the invitation is Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Cornyn has been criticized by conservative activists for supporting Fiorina even as a more-conservative Republican candidate, state Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, is running.

Fiorina is scheduled to give a Nov. 6 address to the Tri-Valley Business Council, a group of Bay Area business leaders , where she is rumored to be kicking off her campaign. She has already set up a website that hints at her pending candidacy.

Fiorina is eyeing the seat held by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), one of the most liberal members of the Senate.

Well, the fundraiser for Trey Grayson had many more Senators and he had already announced. This one for Fiorina will likely only be for about $10,000-$20,000 at the most. If DeVore supporters want to beat the establishment at their own game, it won't be hard.

I'm in for $100 if we want to do a California Fight
