Failed California GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina was named on Tuesday as the vice chair of the Republicans' effort to retake the Senate in 2012.
"I'm pleased to welcome my friend Carly Fiorina to the NRSC team, where her many business and civic achievements will make her an invaluable leader and fundraiser during this critical election cycle," said the committee chair, Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, in a statement. "I look forward to working with Carly to elect strong Republican Senators who will finally put a stop to President Obamas failed tax-and-spend agenda, and instead promote the economic growth and job creation Americans so badly need."
The announcement Tuesday is her first public move since that loss. At the NRSC, Fiorina will focus on economic issues and fundraising.
"The Senate sets the legislative agenda for the nation. I am proud to work alongside Chairman Cornyn, Vice Chairman [Orrin] Hatch and all Republican Senators to restore a Republican majority in 2012," Fiorina said in a statement. "Republicans in the Senate will provide job creators the opportunities and environment they need to grow our economy, decentralize power out of Washington, and restore fiscal accountability."

I wonder what they are going to do with Linda McMahon?
God help us!! Thank God Mike Lee is already endorsing real conservatives.
Another RINO, no doubt courtesy of Senators Cornyn and Hatch.
Come on, give the woman a chance. With the job she did on... er, at HP, hasn’t she earned a chance?!
Of all the people, the NRSC hires a known felon. The crap she got away with at Lucent and HP is legendary.
In some dump somewhere are boxcars full of lucent circuitboards that got ‘shipped’ at the end of a tight quarter. They were supposed to come back and be re-warehoused, but they melted in the Texas sun.
The party is toast. Why not make Arnold the chairman? He’s a republican, right?
What a great idea. Just look how successful HP, McCain’s campaign and her own campaign were. After three failures, there has to be a success somewhere in the future.
Because ICarly has such a long successful political track record.
As if endorsing Specter and Crist wasn’t bad enough, Cornyn doesn’t seem to stop.
Carly Fiorina as Vice Chair. Yeah, that’s the ticket. That’ll get the conservatives to open the donation floodgates. Oh be still my beating heart. Etc.

“Failed California GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina was named on Tuesday as the vice chair of the Republicans’ effort to retake the Senate in 2012.”
I thought she was a Democrat...
Oh, that’s precious. Yep, that’s going to fire up the base alright.
Between McConnell’s announcement this afternoon and this, I’m going to go out to the shop and light something on fire. Just because something needs to be burned.
This is patently absurd.
I think we’re growing much closer to the point where we dispense with voting and start taking more dramatic action to recover our Republic.
If Fiorina had been half as gutsy and intelligent as Bachmann or Palin she would be the Junior Senator from California now. Carly - bleah.
This fits so well with McConnell’s debt-ceiling surrender.
Well, until we can get enough people to participate in the party organization for the people be able to control the politicians through the party structure, the politicians will control the party.
Oh my Gawd! So much for the Republican party. I’m SURE she will handle this just as well as she handled Hewlett-Packard, which she basically ran into the ground.
