Fiorina courts Latinos in California Senate race
Associated Press ^ | June 26, 2010 | JULIET WILLIAMS

Posted on 06/26/2010 6:52:43 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina launched a new effort Saturday to reach out to Latino voters, unveiling a Spanish-language website with supporters at a Hispanic-owned catering company.

But her chief endorsement at Saturday's event, former U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, has sharply different views from Fiorina on controversial immigration issues, including Arizona's new law and offering a path to legalization for those already in the United States illegally.

She supports Gov. Brewer of AZ and their new law.

This old dog-through-the-flaming-hoop trick is getting so cliche. She’s clearly surrounded herself with the same old Wilson-Schwarzenegger staffers. YAWN.....

Fiorina supports the law against illegals in Arizona

Fiornia is against Cap & Trade

Fiorina is against Obamacare,

Carly Fiorina states:
Reducing the Deficit

“Tax, spend and borrow is not a governing philosophy, it’s
a cycle of dependency.”

Immigration
“Illegal immigration undermines our security.”

Protecting America
“Government’s first and foremost priority is to protect its citizens. That means defending our nation from threats of all kinds, both domestic and foreign.”

I am glad to vote for Republican Carly Fiorina over
Democrat Barbara Boxer

Too bad ther are those on FR who don’t even live in California and who are pimping for Democrat Boxer

Carly Fiorina is my enemy! Sorry, but I can see nothing other than the undeniable that RINOs do as much if not more damage than CommieCrates.

Sorry you don’t support Fiorina who is against cap & trade, against ObamaCare, against illegals.

Looks like Left wing Boxer has your vote.

If Joe McCarthy was running for office today, would he translate his campaign website into Russian?

NO - of course not - for all his faults, he walked the walk and made it absolutely clear he was working for Americans.

Sorry but I have a really hard time believing this broad is on our side here.

Show me where she specifically denounces amnesty.

Because

“Illegal immigration undermines our security.”

Could also mean..a new pathway to citizenship.

No true conservative would print his campaign materials in the invader’s mother tongue. Folks who can’t even be bothered to learn English have NO business voting in this country.

I can’t think of any other nation that would entertain this sort of madness.

No one likes it. They are 48% of the population in CA.
A candidate can suck it up and think they can win with the least amount of votes or try to win.

For or against Amnesty?

CAlifornia has more Democrats than Republicans
and those democrats are Liberal.

48% of the population is Mexican.

Those supporting Boxer on this thread don’t list their state on their home page.

AS a Conservative REpublican I am voting for Fiorina
not the Democrat Boxer.

You can keep pushing Boxer but I don’t vote for Democrats.

She’s either lying to them, or she’s lying to us.

A politician who is beholden to unassimilated foreign nationals simply cannot serve the best interests of the American people.

Statistically speaking, persons who are fluent in Spanish but not English overwhelmingly vote Democrat anyway. The only hint of an advantage Fiorina might have is that her name ends in a vowel.

Carly Fiorina has been endorsed by the National Right to Life, the California Pro-Life Council, and the Susan B. Anthony List.

She is pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-military, and pro-strict border security and against amnesty.
She is against Obamacare and will vote to repeal it and prevent the government takeover of private companies and industries.

Carly is also a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Like me, she is a member of the NRA, has a 100% NRA rating, and she and her husband are gun owners.

She is pro-energy development and believes as I do in an all-of-the-above approach to energy independence.

She is against cap and tax. And most importantly, Carly is the only conservative in the race who can beat Barbara Boxer. That’s no RINO. That’s a winner.
- Sarah Palin

DeVore is also supporting her.

Being critical of Carly does not mean that I am a liberal.

It means that Palin made ANOTHER mistake in backing a female republican just because she is a female . She should have never backed this RINO that loves the sound of the muslim prayers..and has questionable actions at HP over the Iranian sales of HP items.\

It was her job to ensure that the no laws were being broken. She was the head of the company...that ran it into the ground.

Your beef is with Palin, thought so.

DeVore throughout the campaign hung around 16%

California is a Liberal state.

You go with the best on the issues who can beat Boxer.

Carly against cap and trade. Did you bother to listen how she was praising Kerry and Graham in that interview with Cavuto?

Pro life? Why wouldn’t she and why hasn’t she answered the question about Roe V Wade?

Against Obamacare? SINCE WHEN???????????????????????????????????????????

There are a number of us who don't particularly like Fiorina.

HOWEVER - Boxer has had that seat for a long, long time and she's proven very difficult to dislodge.

If we can get Boxer out and Fiorina in, then next time we can try for someone more conservative.

Putting a conservative in CA's senate seats is going to take more than one step.

You are just posting a bunch of talking points with no meat behind them.

It’s like Mccain saying whatever is necessary just to get elected..but look at how he acted as a Senator.

Carly thinks Global Warming deserves a serious response.

I disagree with that. I fear that once this RINO gets in we won’t be able to get her out for awhile. She is bad news.

Like Mccain.

Her she is lying about her own positions on internet taxation.

I still shake my head over Mccain saying he never claimed he was a Maverick.

You can put this right at the feet of Sarah Palin- who is backing women who should not be elected just because they are women.

Carly was caught outright lying about her positions on internet taxation.

I guess she will fit right into those in Washington DC who should be getting the boot with replacements that have some integrity...but wont because Palin decides to back a woman who doesn’t own a gun, who wont say whether she would ban assault weapons, or vote to overturn ROE V WADE, who praises Kerry and Graham on their Cap and Trade bill, who declined to say whether she would vote for a pathway to citizenship, WHO TOLD A WSJ REPORTER THAT SHE OPPOSED THE ARIZONA IMMIGRATION LAW, who had no opinion on OBamacare as late as October, and on and on and on...oh and has been comforted by the sound of the Muslim prayer and would feel peace when she heard it.

I think Carly would be no better than Boxer..and in fact, probably worse. Add to that she is a Muslim lover . Palin should have never backed her.

The ONLY advantage of Carly winning is getting an R in the seat in terms of control of the Senate..but you can be assured that she will be as bad as the Maine Twins - if not worse. It will be hard to get her out to get a better person than her into the seat.We had a shot at it. All Palin had to do was back Chuck Devore.

Carly certainly ran HP into the ground....not to mention ...what really happened with those sales of HP items to Iran.....

No, I don’t vote in lockstep with Republicans just because they have a R behind their names. In fact, after the cowardly mess I am seeing from most Republicans I am now an independent.

I am strongly against Democrat Donor Whitman, RINO FLIP FLOPPER DONT CALL ME MAVERICK Mccain ,Demon Sheep Muslim Lover Carly, and Second Chance Backer Angle.

That doesn’t make me a liberal. It makes me a disgusted Republican.

I'm certainly not thrilled. But Boxer's seat is being treated as though it's a lifetime appointment, like Ted Kennedy's was. THAT idea has to be broken into pieces - then we have a chance at moving forward to someone more conservative.

I am a Conservtive Republican, I don’t vote for Democrats and don’t vote for people who will never receive 19% of the vote and enable the Democrat to win.

Many FReepers love Democrats and will pimp for them via third party or no win candidates to divide votes.
