Group from Carly Fiorina’s Home State Calls Out Her Record

Eddie Kurtz, executive director of the California-based Courage Campaign, issued the following statement on news that Carly Fiorina will enter the race for the Republican nomination for President in 2016:

“Here in California, we know Carly Fiorina’s dismal record all too well. In business — Fiorina was one of the worst CEOs in the history of tech — presiding over a period at Hewlett-Packard where its stock tumbled 50% – and leaped 6.9% the day after her departure. She’s been called the “anti-Steve Jobs.” In elections — Fiorina has a record of not even voting — prior to her run against Sen. Boxer, Fiorina had voted in just 6 national, state or local elections in the previous 19 years.  And in California – Fiorina has a record of embarrassing campaign gaffes, like her infamous “Demon Sheep” ad and advancing controversial conservative positions that are completely out of step with the voters she should be representing. She is utterly unqualified for the presidency, and we look forward to watching her prove that on the national stage.”
