  • Lewandowski, Fiorina up for Republican Party chair

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/10/16 | Paul Bedard
    The incoming Trump team is considering two key GOP power players to head the Republican National Committee, former campaign chief Corey R. Lewandowski and former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, according to insiders. In fact, one suggested that both could be at the Republican National Committee as co-chairs. Another suggested format would have Fiorina as chair and chief talking head and Lewandowski, now a CNN political commentator, as the day to day operator or executive director. The chairmanship election takes place next January. Current Chairman Reince Priebus is in the mix for several Trump administration jobs, including White House chief of...

    For most of the past year, Carly Fiorina worked as hard as she could to beat Donald Trump. First, she competed against the eventual GOP presidential nominee in the scrum of the 17-candidate Republican primary. After her campaign foundered, she returned to the fray briefly as the running mate of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the final days of his campaign. Now, as crunch time for Republicans emerges and the choice is stark, Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, says she is making a choice she wants all Americans to make. “We must have President Trump — we can’t have...

    Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) criticized Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz for selecting former Hewlett-Packard executive Carly Fiorina as his running mate, arguing the pick shows the Texas senator has “no judgment whatsoever.” Fiorina challenged Boxer for her Senate seat in 2010, and lost the election by 10 points. Boxer effectively used Fiorina’s HP tenure against her, criticizing the former CEO for laying off thousands at the California-based company and moving many jobs overseas. The failed Senate campaign loomed large over Fiorina’s foray into the 2016 presidential race, which ended shortly after underwhelming performances in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire...

    Throughout the Republican Party, from New Hampshire to Florida to California, many leaders, operatives, donors and activists arrived this week at the conclusion they had been hoping to thwart or at least delay: Donald Trump will be their presidential nominee. An aura of inevitability is now forming around the controversial mogul. Trump smothered his opponents in six straight primaries in the Northeast and vacuumed up more delegates than even the most generous predictions foresaw. He is gaining high-profile ­endorsements by the day — a legendary Indiana basketball coach Wednesday, two House committee chairmen Thursday. And his ­rivals, Sen. Ted Cruz...

    The panic level in the Cruz campaign has hit Titanic levels — as in Ted’s about to hit the iceberg. His clumsy alliance with John Kasich over the weekend was embarrassing enough and now naming Carly Fiorina as a running mate is wishful thinking. Can’t Cruz count?

At HP, Fiorina was a prominent supporter of the offshore outsourcing model, said Ron Hira, an associate professor of public policy at Howard University, who wrote about Fiorina's approaches in his book, Outsourcing America. "To pump up profits, she was an early adopter of the practice, which given HP's status as a leading Silicon Valley firm, pushed other firms to adopt offshoring," said Hira. "It...

    No matter how many times Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz refutes claims he cheated on his wife, Heidi, the National Enquirer seems determined to prove the White House candidate is a philanderer. The Texas senator, however, has vehemently denied the allegations, saying that is was “garbage” fabricated by Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s campaign. When Deborah Palfrey, a Washington, D.C., madam, mysteriously died, she supposedly left behind a “black book” that implicates Cruz, according to National Enquirer. There are 15,000 clients named in the book, and Cruz is apparently one of them, according to the publication. The madam’s clients would pay...

    Karl Rove says that instead of nominating Donald Trump, Ted Cruz or John Kasich “a fresh face might be the thing that could give us a chance to turn this election and win in November against Hillary.” In an interview with Hugh Hewitt on Thursday, Rove weighed in on the 2016 election and called on Trump to start “acting in a presidential manner” in order to turn his high unfavorable ratings around. Hewitt asked Rove, “If Donald Trump is the nominee, how do you recover from a 30 percent favorable/63 percent unfavorable, as you note in your column today?” Rove...
