Republican candidate for Senate, Carly Fiorina, was released from a hospital Wednesday, one day after she was forced to take a break from the campaign trail to treat an infection.

"Carly learned more than a year and a half ago that she, like millions of women, had breast cancer. After successfully battling cancer, she had reconstructive surgery this summer and remains cancer free today," said her Chief of Staff, Deborah Bowker, in a statement.

"However, this morning Carly came down with an infection associated with the reconstructive surgery and, as a result, she was admitted to the hospital to receive antibiotics to treat this infection," Bowker wrote.

Bowker went on to say that doctors expect Fiorina to make a "quick and full recovery."

"Since she was admitted to the hospital yesterday morning, Carly has  been successfully treated for the infection she had as a result of  reconstructive surgery following her victory over breast cancer," according to  a statement from the Fiorina campaign. "This morning, her doctors gave her the  good news that she will be released form the hospital today and can resume her  busy campaign scheduled tomorrow."

Fiorina was scheduled to appear Tuesday in Coachella and Riverside. Campaign workers told the Desert Sun they were working to get a supporter to stand in for her in Coachella. In Riverside, she was scheduled to attend a discussion on job creation.

"We wish Carly Fiorina a speedy recovery and hope she is able to return to her normal schedule soon," said Rose Kapolczynski, campaign manager for incumbent Sen. Barbara Boxer.

A poll conducted by the Public Policy Institute of California released last week shows Boxer holds a slight lead over Fiorina. Although the numbers have diminished since September, the poll shows Boxer still has the advantage when it comes to likely voters with 43 percent to 38 percent. Boxer's lead has slipped by two points.
