Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina disagrees with a federal judge’s ruling that overturned the same-sex marriage ban in California, the state she seeks to represent.

According to the Associated Press, “Fiorina says California voters spoke clearly against same-sex unions when a majority approved Proposition 8 in 2008.”

Fiorina, a former Hewlett Packard CEO, will face U.S. senator Barbara Boxer in the general election. Boxer, a Democrat, supports marriage equality and the ruling Wednesday from U.S. district judge Vaughn Walker, reports the AP.
