In the state’s gubernatorial race, Democratic state Attorney General Jerry Brown and Republican former eBay CEO Meg Whitman are deadlocked, 45%-45%.When Fox News polled both races on September 11, Boxer was on top of Fiorina by two points, 46%-44%, and Whitman had a six-point advantage on Brown, 49%-43%.
