UPSTATE LAWMAKER JOINS “CARLY FOR AMERICA”
|| By FITSNEWS || Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina – who has emerged as one of the “Republican” party’s most pointed, articulate critics of presumed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton – is getting some early support in early-voting South Carolina.
Sources close to Fiorina’s 2016 campaign tell FITS she’s received the endorsement of S.C. Rep. Donna Hicks of Spartanburg, S.C.
“As a business owner myself, I believe that we need someone with real-world experience who understands how the economy works,” Hicks said in a Fiorina campaign release obtained by FITS. “Carly has a very successful track record at HP and then worked hard leading both Good360 and Opportunity International to help provide for those around the country and around the world who are hurting. We need Carly’s leadership in the White House.”
Hicks’ support “means a lot to us,” said Taylor Mason, the South Carolina Political Director for CARLY for America.
“She recognizes what we all do – that Carly Fiorina is the fresh candidate who will turn the conversation around,” Mason added. “More than ever, leaders need to overcome the simplified platitudes being tossed around in these very serious discussions about the future of our country. Carly’s thoughtfulness and directness is what American voters have desired, and gone without, for far too long. Carly is the candidate the GOP needs to reclaim the White House.”
Most believe Fiorina – who is still polling in single digits nationally and in early-voting states – is angling for a spot on the national ticket.
So far, so good …
