What They’re Saying: Praise for Fiorina’s Strong Senate Bid

Fiorina A Serious Challenger For Boxer

“The Charismatic Former Business Leader Could Be Boxer’s Greatest Challenge Since Her Election To The Senate In 1992.”  “Boxer has the edge in Democratic-leaning California, but Fiorina’s entry means the race will be among the most closely watched in the nation. The charismatic former business leader could be Boxer’s greatest challenge since her election to the Senate in 1992.” (“Former HP Boss To Run For Senate,” The Star-Ledger, 11/5/09)

Fiorina Could Be “The Stiffest Re-Election Challenge” Of Boxer’s Career. “With millions in personal wealth, a telegenic persona and the backing of some national Republican leaders, Fiorina could give Boxer, 68, the stiffest re-election challenge of her career.” (San Jose Mercury News, 11/4/09)

Political Analysts Say Fiorina Would Be Boxer’s “Most Formidable Opponent Since She Was Elected To The Senate.” “Whatever Fiorina’s faults, political analysts say she would be Boxer’s most formidable opponent since she was elected to the Senate.” (San Jose Mercury News, 11/3/09)

Republicans Believe Fiorina Presents “Serious Challenge” For Boxer. “Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina (R) declared her intentions to run for Senate in California on Wednesday, after exploring a 2010 campaign against Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) for months. National Republicans think Fiorina could mount a serious challenge to Boxer, a third-term incumbent whose aggressive brand of liberal politics has made her the more vulnerable of the Golden State’s two Democratic Senators.” (Roll Call, 11/5/09)

Fiorina’s Personal Style A Good Fit For California, Politics

“A Woman Who Started Her Career As A Secretary And Went On To Become The First, And Only, Woman To Lead A Fortune 20 Company Is Not To Be Underestimated, But Respected.” “By no means am I suggesting that Fiorina is a lightweight. A woman who started her career as a secretary and went on to become the first, and only, woman to lead a Fortune 20 company is not to be underestimated, but respected.” (The Washington Post, 11/5/09)

San Francisco Chronicle: Fiorina “Tough-As-Nails.” “Tough-as-nails former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina kicked off her U.S. Senate campaign this week with defiant words for a ruthless opponent – her cancer.” (San Francisco Chronicle, 11/7/09)

NPR: “Her Resume Is Impressive.” “Fiorina says she’s a political newcomer who can bring her business sense to Congress. Her resume is impressive. As the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, she was the first woman to ever lead a Fortune top 20 company.” (“Former Silicon Valley CEO Targets Boxer’s Senate Seat,” National Public Radio, 11/5/09)

 “She’s Charismatic And Commanding.” “Fiorina, who yesterday revealed her plans in the Orange County Register, has a personality tailor-made for campaigning: She’s charismatic and commanding.” (Fortune/CNN Money, 11/5/09)

Fiorina’s Personal Style A Good Fit For California, Politics

Fiorina Impressed Last Year With “Her Strong Defense Of The Republican Ticket And Her Broad Knowledge Of Economic Issues.”  “Few if any political analysts think liberal Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer is in danger of being denied a fourth term, but this race is drawing a lot of attention because of former Hewlett-Packard Chief Executive Carly Fiorina’s candidacy, her star power and the millions she can pour into her campaign. Mrs. Fiorina, a top economic adviser in Sen. John McCain’s presidential bid, has never run for public office before, but she impressed party pros last year with her strong defense of the Republican ticket and her broad knowledge of economic issues.” (The Washington Times, 11/10/09)

Fiorina’s Senate Endorsements “Cover A Range Of Backgrounds Within The Republican – From Conservative Tom Coburn To Moderates Such As Susan Collins And Olympia Snowe.” “Carly Fiorina has collected the endorsement of eight GOP senators, a day after announcing a run for the U.S. Senate in California.  The endorsements, announced Thursday, cover a range of backgrounds within the Republican Party—from conservative Tom Coburn to moderates such as Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe.  They also include John McCain, who said he benefited from Fiorina’s no-nonsense style when she served as economic adviser during his failed presidential bid last year.” (The Associated Press, 11/5/09)
