California Republican Senate nominee Carly Fiorina has been hospitalized with an infection related to her post-breast-cancer surgery, according to her campaign.

Fiorina was admitted to an unspecified Los Angeles hospital Tuesday morning to receive antibiotics, according to a statement released by her chief of staff, Deborah Bowker. The illness takes Fiorina off the campaign trail at a crucial time in her tough contest with Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.

“While this will impact her campaign schedule today, Carly is upbeat, and her doctors expect her to make a quick and full recovery and be back out on the campaign trail soon,” Bowker said.

Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett Packard, was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2009 and underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation to treat it. After her treatment, she had reconstructive surgery this summer.

The current illness is “an infection associated with the reconstructive surgery,” but Fiorina “remains cancer free today,” according to the campaign statement.
