Carly Fiorina

News & Politics Emily Wolodkowicz (Nov. 9, 2015)

Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, is the only woman running for the Republican Party. Although Fiorina has never held political office before, she believes that her lack of political experience is part of what makes her a good candidate. Fiorina attributes her role as CEO at Hewlett-Packard to giving her solid preparation to make decisions that are required for a world leader. Fiorina was the first woman to take control of a Fortune 100 company and has been named the most powerful woman in American business by Fortune magazine.

In 2010, Fiorina unsuccessfully made a run for Congress in California. After being defeated, she then decided to run for the Republican nomination for president. Carly Fiorina describes herself as a Moderate Conservative. Fiorina’s platform is heavily involved in the big issues such as abortion, education, homeland security, and the economy. Carly has led a number of charities and nonprofits. She is chairman of many organizations such as the American Conservative Union Foundation and chairman of a Christian faith-based organization that helps lift millions out of poverty worldwide.

Although most of her public image is largely defined by her time as CEO at Hewlett-Packard, Carly Fiorina believes that she can turn this country around, and show everyone that a business woman can be the change our country needs as the president of the United States.
