Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is looking to shift the focus of her campaign against incumbent Barbara Boxer back to talking about the economy. Fiorina regrets criticizing Boxer's hairstyle following her GOP primary victory last week, but Fiorina stopped short of apologizing.

"Well, I was quoting a friend of mine, but look, I regret this whole situation. I gave people the opportunity to talk about something petty and superficial. And this is a very serious election with serious issues," said Fiorina.

Fiorina had described Boxer's hair as so "yesterday," when caught on an open microphone last week. But when asked on "Fox News Sunday" if she had called Boxer to apologize, Fiorina implied she had not, by dodging the question.
