Sen. Barbara Boxer is meeting with supporters in Palo Alto tonight to discuss her plan to create jobs in California as part of a two-day statewide tour.

Boxer is wrapping up the "Jobs for California" tour at an event hosted by the Santa Clara County Democratic Party where she will highlight a plan to make California a hub of clean energy. The nine-city tour started in San Francisco on Tuesday.

Boxer is facing a challenge from Republican candidate Carly Fiorina for her Senate seat in the November election.

Tonight, at 6 p.m., she will visit the home of supporter Stephanie Grossman at 1121 Harriet St., where she'll be joined by Palo Alto Vice Mayor Sid Espinosa and San Jose Councilwoman Nora Campos.
