CLOVIS, CA – In reflection of the growing support behind her campaign to defeat Barbara Boxer, U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today met with members of the Central Valley Tea Party, including organizer Steve Brandau. Following the meeting, Fiorina held a press conference with several area officials including Congressman Devin Nunes, Former Fresno Mayor Alan Autry and Clovis City Councilman Nathan Magsig all of whom have endorsed Fiorina.
“We are pleased to see Carly Fiorina reaching out to the Central Valley Tea Party as she has on multiple occasions. We are glad that Carly expresses similar views of limited government, fiscal responsibility and free markets,” said Brandau. “It is important that California have a senator that understands the need for a citizen-run government that empowers the people. In my opinion, Carly is the most viable option to beat Barbara Boxer in November.”
The Central Valley Tea Party is a grassroots organization consisting of volunteers in California’s Central Valley who are committed to advancing the ideals of fiscal responsibility, limited government and free markets. The organization serves to educate and inform the community about its core values, secure public policies consistent with those values and positively affect the outcome of elections.
“Here in the Central Valley and across our great state, Californians have had enough. They have had enough of a government that is out of touch, yet insists on encroaching on our lives. They have had enough of big-government policies that cost a lot of money but fail to deliver results. They have had enough of Barbara Boxer, who refuses to lift a finger to turn on the Delta pumps to help the farmers and communities in this region whose lives and livelihoods depend on a reliable water supply,” said Fiorina. “We have all had enough. And this November, we can make a difference together by firing Barbara Boxer. I am the conservative candidate with the real-world experience it will take to beat her and help take Washington back, make it listen and make it work. That’s why I’m asking for your vote today.”
Recent polling – including surveys conducted by KABC/SurveyUSA, Public Policy Polling and Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies – has shown Fiorina leading her Republican primary opponents by as much as 23 points.
