IRVINE, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today delivered remarks at the Orange County Forum monthly luncheon about her background, her campaign for U.S. Senate and her vision for California’s future.
“As a political outsider with real-world experience, I know firsthand what it takes to create jobs, make payroll and meet a budget. These are skills our representatives in Washington need now more than ever to help put Americans back to work and get our economy growing again,” said Fiorina. “I’m running for U.S. Senate because the decisions made in Washington affect every family and every business in America, and California needs and deserves better representation in the Senate.”
Since declaring her candidacy for U.S. Senate in November, Fiorina has traveled the state to discuss her campaign priorities: creating jobs, growing the economy and cutting wasteful government spending. In the last month, she has taken her message of fiscal conservatism to voters in Fontana, Fresno, Sacramento and Los Angeles, among many other campaign stops.
“For 18 years, Barbara Boxer has championed big-government policies that raise our taxes and slow our economy’s growth. Given these tough economic times, we need leaders and advocates in Washington who are able to put aside partisanship and ego to develop real, effective solutions to our state’s and our nation’s most pressing challenges,” Fiorina continued. “Effecting policy change begins by effecting changes in our representation in Washington. As a U.S. Senator, I will always put the needs of my fellow Californians first.”
