California's GOP US Senate candidate Carly Fiorina says she quoted a friend when her comment on US Senator Barbara Boxer's hair was caught by a live microphone during a California television appearance Wednesday.
Fiorina added that her own hair has been "talked about by a million people."
The microphone also captured Fiorina questioning Republican gubernatorial nominee Meg Whitman's decision to be interviewed Wednesday by Fox's Sean Hannity. Fiorina called it "bizarre" and a "bad choice."
Fiorina told Van Susteren that she has apologized to Hannity and will appear on his show Friday.
