Republicans Whitman and Fiorina and Democrats Brown and Boxer bring different levels of wealth, history and intensity to their races in an unpredictable year.
The California campaigns for governor and senator can look like one big unwieldy whole, moving inexorably toward November, cluttering television screens and radio airwaves and mailboxes statewide. Close up, they are four campaigns distinct in style and personality. There is Republican Meg Whitman's campaign for governor, where nothing is accidental. There is Democrat Jerry Brown's challenge, reveling in its just-out-of-bed disorganization. There is Barbara Boxer's campaign, that of a Democratic senator staring down her toughest challenge in an anti-incumbent year. And there is Carly Fiorina's campaign, with its first-time candidate trying to replicate other come-from-behind Republican victories this rambunctious year.
