Fiorina Officially Announces Candidacy

Disclaimer: Carly is one of my least favorite persons in the world, I have my reasons (I was original HP Blue before she came in…my old school HP colleagues know what I’m talking about).

That being said, I will still post this relevant news of the day in an objective fashion.

After months of speculation, Fiorina on Wednesday officially announced her candidacy. She’ll run as a Republican against Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.). Of course to do that, she must first win the Republican primary. Fiorina broke the news in the Orange County Register:

“Admittedly, I have not always been engaged in the electoral process, and I should have been,” she wrote. “For many years I felt disconnected from the decisions made in Washington and, to be honest, really didn’t think my vote mattered because I didn’t have a direct line of sight from my vote to a result. I realize that thinking was wrong. As I grew throughout my career, beginning as a secretary and eventually becoming a CEO, I saw how government impacted business. I learned more as a member of advisory boards at the State Department, the Pentagon and the CIA. I now understand, in a very real way, that the decisions made by the Senate impact every family and every business, of any size, in America. This is what motivates me to run for the U.S. Senate. And so today I am announcing my candidacy to serve the people of California as your next U.S. senator. … Together we can turn things around.”

With this announcement, Fiorina has already started with the slashing these known for; speaking towards the contributions of current California Senator Barbara Boxer, Fiorina said, “…I look at the United States Senate and ask: does California have the representation we deserve? The clear answer is no. Barbara Boxer has been a senator for almost 18 years.

During that time, she’s only gotten three laws enacted – naming a river in Virginia, a courthouse in Fresno, and bringing bridge repair money to the Bay Area, where she is from. One piece of real work in 18 years isn’t much of a track record. That’s not good enough for California.” [via]

Oh my, let the games begin !
