    Rick Perry may be out of the race for president, but the Republican field is still brimming with Texans. One of them is Carly Fiorina, who has surged into the top tier of candidates, behind only Donald Trump and Ben Carson in recent polls. Born Cara Carleton Sneed in Austin in September 1954 to Joseph Tyree Sneed III, a law professor at the University of Texas at Austin, and his wife, Madelon, her Texas residency was fleeting. She departed at age 2
  • Jeb Bush’s PAC Erases Carly Fiorina From GOP Race

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 12, 2015 | Neil Munro
    A new Internet-ad by Jeb Bush’s independent PAC erases fourth-place challenger Carly Fiorina from the GOP’s 2016 line-up. The 15-second ad shows Bush’s eight male rivals — Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Ben Carson, etc. — but noticeably excludes the one woman in the race. That’s unexpected, because Fiorina currently leads fifth-place Bush, 8.9 percent to 7.1 percent, in RCP’s average of primary polls, following Fiorina’s highly rated performance in the GOP’s second debate. “Maybe Jeb is just trying to forget the last debate?,” said Sarah Isgur Flores, Fiorina’s deputy campaign manager. “Or maybe they can’t read New Hampshire...

    In America, the saying goes, anyone can grow up to be president. Well, “anyone” did, and now it seems like everyone else wants to try. One of Barack Obama’s few accomplishments as president is that he has substantially lowered the bar for future aspirants. In retrospect, it is still mind-boggling that citizens of the most powerful nation on earth, presumed leader of the free world, risked its governance on a community organizer of little note, a senator for less than one term with no legislative achievements to speak of. It should not be a surprise when the country that elects...

    The New York Times' Sunday Review ^ | October 10, 2015 | Frank Bruni
    OVER the last two decades, through Bob Dole and George W. Bush and John McCain and Mitt Romney, it has become an article of faith that the Republican presidential nominee is a person blessed by, or acceptable to, the party’s establishment, meaning the elders, the bankers, the cool heads, the deep pockets. There’s mess along the way — brief tantrums by restive voters, fleeting triumphs by renegade candidates — but order and obeisance in the end. Is this the election cycle when that changes? The twilight of the Republican elite? Donald Trump’s stamina and the ascendance of Ben Carson and...

    Two weeks after 9/11, on September 26, 2001, Carly Fiorina gave a speech, "Technology, Business and Our Way of Life: What's Next," in which she tied courage, leadership, heroes, and “the questions of life and death” to business leaders learning from one of the greatest civilizations to ever exist: Islamic civilization. Her claims evidence her exceptional ineptitude or blatant, galling, willful deceit. Consider her claims about Islam and America.

    Should Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina win the Oval Office, she wouldn’t be making any calls to her counterpart in Russia. “I wouldn’t speak to Vladmir Putin,” Fiorina said. She would, however, rebuild a missile defense program in Poland and conduct military exercises in the Baltic States. “I would guarantee you that after four or five or six months of that kind of behavior, Vladmir Putin will speak differently with the United States of America,” she said. “It’s how people behave. He’s a bully.” Fiorina, the only woman seeking the GOP nomination, is the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. She ran...

    For over three decades, Carly Fiorina's bachelor's degree from Stanford University in medieval history and philosophy has had little real-world application. But as she mounts a presidential bid, the Republican candidate says her degree is finally of use as she considers how she would deal with ISIS as commander-in-chief.

    Yes, it is time again to play that game, "What's Happening in The Campaign For Leadership Of The Free World?" A few observations, from the front lines: 1. Last week, a friend reported on an Iowa focus group. Of 31 Republican voters, only one was irrevocably committed to a candidate. The rest split their preferences among two candidates or more. Point: This race is remarkably fluid. Voters are still shopping. 2. There is no impetus for Republican voters to place their final bets soon. They fear their country is in decline, and this may be their last chance to save...

According to MSNBC, Fiorina assailed "the left and their allies in the media" for the story, which was based on more than two dozen interviews with staff members, friends, contractors and operatives who worked on the 2010 Senate campaign. All said there was a huge problem with the operation: It didn't manage money well. Fiorina said Monday that The Post...

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina attacked "the left and their allies in the media" for a critical report released Monday that says her 2010 California Senate campaign mismanaged money and failed to pay vendors for their work. More than four years after the failed campaign, Fiorina still owed nearly half a million dollars to 30 entities. She didn't pay off her debt until January of 2015, just a few months before she launched her presidential bid. One of the outstanding payments due was to her political strategist Joe Shumate who died one month before Election Day as first reported by...

    Carly Fiorina's 2010 Senate campaign had a big problem with money. As our colleague Robert Samuels reported, it took years for Fiorina to settle about $500,000 worth of invoices after she lost the race in California -- despite reimbursing herself nearly $1.3 million she lent the campaign. Fiorina didn't pay the widow of her pollster at least $30,000 he was owed for his last paycheck after the race was lost. He died about a month before Election Day.

According to the piece, Fiorina, the wealthy former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, waited until January, a few months before announcing her 2016 presidential bid, to settle most of the more than 30 invoices outstanding from her last campaign - a total of about $500,000. She was quicker to reimburse herself the $1.3 million she lent the campaign. Fiorina, when asked about the article Monday, dismissed it. "You know I don't think the...

Clearly, we can't settle that question now. Yet my skepticism isn't just about what's unfolding this year. It's about what's happened over the past...

It might seem odd, then, that her Fiorina Foundation has given half a million dollars to Planned Parenthood since 2011. The Fiorina Foundation isn't actually, legally, a foundation, per se; it's an account Fiorina and her husband hold with The Ayco Charitable Foundation, a "donor-advised fund" that stashes charitable donations for clients in case they want to quickly receive tax benefits, The Daily Beast explains.

Fiorina's show-stealing performance in a Republican presidential debate last month, and her subsequent surge in the polls, has prompted industrialists Charles and David Koch to take a “serious look” at the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive, according to three sources close to the brothers. She has now moved to the short list of candidates the Kochs may support with their reported $1 billion war chest, the...

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

    In a rare moment of bipartisan agreement, both Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina have called for the United States and its coalition partners to establish a no-fly zone in Syria to protect U.S.-backed rebel groups – effectively challenging Russia to a military confrontation if it wants to bomb them. Following is a review of where the 2016 candidates stand on the Syrian situation, beginning with Fiorina and Clinton, and the differences between their no-fly zone proposals. Only those candidates who have made statements about the Russian campaign and how to respond since the air strikes began are included. Carly Fiorina:...

    WWIII over CIA backed rebels? No thanks. We needed a President and Secretary of State who could stymie Russia on the diplomatic front. We needed a President who was up to the task of managing the world stage. We needed a Commander in Chief who would be either feared or respected by our allies and enemies alike. We don't have that. Instead, we're faced with Middle Eastern chaos, a rapidly expanding global terrorist force, and a refugee crisis that is spreading to every corner of the globe. The President's response has, so far, consisted of a feckless UN speech and...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush scored just 4 percent of the vote in the latest national GOP survey, a catastrophically low number that is sure to raise grave concern among the establishment donors who have invested millions in his success for the 2016 presidential race. The poll, released Friday by the Pew Research Center, shows Bush slipping into sixth place behind Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who is at 6 percent. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Bush’s archrival for establishment backing, has twice Jeb’s support, with 8 percent. Rubio is tied with Fiorina, whose tally suggests the steam may have run out...

    **WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT** The Center for Bioethical Reform, in partnership with the Grantham collection, has released the full version of a video which became a source of political controversy after the 2nd Republican debate. The 13 minute long video shows the birth of what CBR describes as a “17 1/2 week fetus.” The fetus is placed in a metal pan with a clamp attached to its umbilical cord. A comparison demonstrates the new video is the source of the brief segment that appeared in a video produced by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a pro-life investigatory group which has...

    In 2013, Fiorina said of Cruz’s effort to defund Obamacare: "Everyone could see this train wreck coming. I actually feel bad for John Boehner. And I think Ted Cruz’s tactics were wrong. There is no honor charging a hill that you know you can’t take — only casualties. Although Ted Cruz may have gotten name recognition and money along the way." She stood by those comments in an interview with Glenn Beck: " We all want to repeal Obamacare. But here’s what was different then: We did not have a majority. We did not have a majority."

    Donald Trump again leads the Republican primary field – but his lead has dwindled since before the second debate, while Marco Rubio has seen a significant boost in support.Although businessman Donald Trump continues to lead the GOP field when it comes to presidential preference of those registered voters who think of themselves as Republican, he is by no means the best-liked contender for Republicans for those potential voters. At least five other candidates in the latest Economist/YouGov Poll are seen more favorably by Republicans than Trump. Trump’s lead has somewhat diminished in recent weeks, though he remains in first place...

    Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina and Ted Cruz gained ground on the competition in this week’s installment of The Edge, a one-of-a-kind measurement from the New Analytics Company that “scrubs” television, radio, print, internet and social media to gauge positive and negative attention for the 2016 candidates. Last week saw interest in all of the candidates muted by blowout coverage of the papal visit, and this week everyone except eighth-place Ohio Gov. John Kasich got a lift. Candidates Donald Trump, Ben Carson, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie all rebounded...

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina said the U.S. “must be prepared” to shoot down Russian jets in Syria, if that’s what it takes to protect U.S.-backed rebels fighting Assad. “I believe we must tell the Russians that we will conduct, we will secure a no-fly zone around anti-Assad rebel forces that we’re supporting,” Fiorina said on Fox News Wednesday night. “Does that mean we might use force against Russian jets?” host Sean Hannity asked. “Well, hopefully not,” Fiorina replied. “Hopefully, if we are signaling clearly to the Russians our intention, it will not come to that. But if it does...
