Riding a Wave for U. S. Senate and for Governor in California

GOP Hopefuls in California on Different Paths: New York Times, Friday, September 24, 2010, by Jesse McKinley

Meg Whitman and Carly Forina, both former chief executives with personal fortunes of millions of dollars, are Republican candidates for governor and U.S. senator respectively.  “They’re trying to ride the same wave, but they’re riding it a little bit different, ” said Jack Citrin, a professor of political science at the University of California at Berkeley.  “It’s like Fiorina is on a surfboard, and Whitman is on her yacht.”

The wave is the Republican Party’s momentum in the upcoming November election.

Of course, the surfing term, riding a wave, is not usually associated with yachts, but with surfboards.
