10 Biggest Election Wins

9. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) Beats Carly Fiorina (R)

The mythic year of Republican women found one of its leading ladies in Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard executive, who took aim at Democrat Barbara Boxer, California’s “sub-compact” senator, in Barack Obama’s phrase. The race got off to a catty start when Fiorina was caught cracking wise about Boxer’s hairdo. A foreign policy neophyte, Fiorina tried to up her diplomatic chops by schlepping to Israel for a long weekend in September. But it was for naught. Boxer’s saving grace? While other Democrats ran from Obama, she featured the president heavily in her campaign in a rare state where the Obama stamp of approval could actually lift a Democrat. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)
