Republican Senate nominee Carly Fiorina is defending herself on Thursday morning after being caught on an open microphone making fun of Democratic opponent Barbara Boxer's hairstyle.

Fiorina was getting ready for a television interview in Sacramento on Wednesday when she was recorded making the comment about Boxer.

"Laura saw Barbara Boxer briefly on television this morning and said what everyone said, 'God what is that hair,'" Fiorina said with a laugh. "So yesterday."

Fiorina said she was simply quoting a friend when she made that comment.

The microphone also caught her questioning GOP gubernatorial nominee Meg Whitman's decision to be interviewed by Fox's Sean Hannity. Fiorina called it "bizarre" and a "bad choice."
