Del Junco, Herrington, Montgomery, Naylor and Visco Throw Support Behind Fiorina
Sacramento, CA – Calling her the best candidate to take on Barbara Boxer, five former California Republican Party Chairmen today announced their support for Carly Fiorina, should she run for the U.S. Senate. Dr. Tirso Del Junco, former Reagan Administration Secretary of Energy John Herrington, Mike Montgomery, former state Assemblyman Bob Naylor and Frank Visco cite Carly’s leadership skills and successful business background as well as her commitment to Republican values of fiscal conservatism, smaller, more effective government, personal responsibility and individual freedom.
“Carly understands that small businesses like mine are the engine that drives our economy, both here in California and across the country. As California’s Senator Carly would stand up against Democrat-led tax increases and burdensome regulations that are costing jobs,” Visco said.
Naylor, a former Assembly Republican Leader, called Carly the best candidate to take on Barbara Boxer. “Carly Fiorina offers dynamic leadership with the kind of common sense approach that a business background provides and without the harsh partisanship which is Barbara Boxer’s hallmark,” Naylor said.
“As CEO of a Fortune 20 company, Carly would bring incredible leadership and business know- how to the Senate and would be a powerful advocate for California’s interests. That’s a stark contrast to Barbara Boxer, who has proven she cares more about towing the party line than helping Californians,” said Herrington.
A medical doctor, Del Junco noted that Carly would be a powerful voice for California and the country on the critical issues of the day, from jobs and the economy to the current debate about health care reform. “As a businesswoman she understands how the markets work; as a cancer survivor she brings a unique and necessary perspective to the health care debate,” Del Junco added.
Former CRP Chairman Mike Montgomery is also supporting Fiorina.
Carly Fiorina is currently in the “testing the waters” phase of a possible candidacy for the US Senate. She has indicated she would make a decision later this Fall.
