IRVINE, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina and Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) today hosted an employee town hall at Affinity Medical Technologies in Irvine to discuss the state of our nation’s economy, job creation and the need to restore fiscal responsibility and integrity to Washington.
“Our nation’s economy continues to struggle under the weight of burdensome government regulations that stifle growth and make job creation even more difficult. At the same time, we’ve added more than $1 trillion to our national debt over the last year, and government spending is completely out of control,” said Fiorina. “I am honored to have John McCain’s support, and I am grateful he is taking the time to come to California and campaign on my behalf today. We share a common commitment to getting skyrocketing federal spending under control and a common belief that protecting our nation should be Washington’s first and most important priority.”
Senator McCain endorsed Fiorina’s bid for U.S. Senate on the day she announced her candidacy, citing her leadership and her effectiveness in getting things done as being among her best traits.
“As we continue working to address our nation’s economic downturn and unemployment crisis, now more than ever, we need strong fiscal conservatives fighting with us in the U.S. Senate. Carly Fiorina is a proven leader who will stand up for smaller government and lower taxes. I am pleased to be in California campaigning on her behalf, and I look forward to working with her in the U.S. Senate,” said Senator McCain.
