Carly Hosts Jobs Roundtable in Los Angeles

June 25, 2010

“Job creation and economic growth happen when we unleash the talents and energies of California’s workers, small-business owners, innovators and entrepreneurs – not when we grow government.

Carly's Message on Father's Day

June 20, 2010

“My father was one of the most influential people in my life. He was always there with sound advice, welcome perspective and most importantly unconditional love no matter what life brought my way. It is on this day that I honor his memory. All of us have been blessed with men in our lives ­ a father, a grandfather, a friend, a mentor, or a husband ­ who, like my father was, are there for us through all of life’s passages. They are our teachers in the school of life, our champions and a voice of wisdom. So today I hope we all have the opportunity to remember, thank and pay tribute to them for all that they are to us.”

Carly on California’s Unemployment Rate

June 18, 2010

“Our state has lost more than 244,000 jobs over the last year – more than any other state in the union. We have the third highest unemployment rate in the country and hundreds of thousands of Californians are facing long-term unemployment. Twenty-one of our counties, mostly in rural California, are facing unemployment over 15 percent. These numbers underscore just how badly Californians have been let down by the $862 billion economic ‘stimulus’ plan Barbara Boxer championed and by government policy that has made it more difficult to create jobs in the private sector.”

Vice President Biden to Conduct Fourth Rescue Mission to California for Barbara Boxer

June 16, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA – Carly for California Deputy Campaign Manager for Communications Julie Soderlund today issued the following statement in response to the announcement that Vice President Joe Biden will host fundraisers for Barbara Boxer in the Silicon Valley and in Los Angeles on July 8 and July 9:

“Vice President Biden’s plan to visit California in July represents the fourth rescue mission in as many months conducted by the Obama administration to save Barbara Boxer’s failing political career. It’s clear that President Obama, Vice President Biden and Barbara Boxer see the writing on the wall. Their tax-hiking, big-government policies have taken our nation down the wrong path, and they’re worried about losing this November when Americans hold them to account.

Carly Brings Statewide Jobs Tour to Fresno Area

June 15, 2010

“Here in Fresno County, 75,700 residents are unemployed, and the unemployment rate has increased by 1.2 percentage points since the so-called economic ‘stimulus’ plan passed more than a year ago. It’s clear that the $862 billion plan has stimulated nothing but growth in the size and scope of government.”

Carly Issues Statement on San Joaquin Water Allocations

June 15, 2010

“There are only two things that can get water flowing into the Central Valley again: an act of Congress, and an act of God. Since Congress, under Barbara Boxer’s leadership as chairwoman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, has failed to act, the only relief Central Valley residents have seen thus far has come as the result of an act of God in the form of increased rainfall.”

- Carly Fiorina

In Case You Missed It: Economy, Jobs Must Be Top Issues In Senate Campaign

June 10, 2010

“Now, Boxer seems to be getting a solid Republican challenger after facing humdrum GOP hopefuls in 1998 and 2004. Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who seems more of a political natural than most corporate big shots turned candidates, vows to push Boxer over Congress’ inability to get the U.S. economy out of its deep doldrums.

This is a proper focus. More than a year after the passage of a $787 billion “economic stimulus” package, job-creation news remains so grim that the Obama White House is reduced to hyping the federal government’s hiring of hundreds of thousands of temporary census workers.”

Barbara Boxer Votes For Federal Government Power Grab

June 10, 2010

“I support Senator Murkowski’s resolution, and I’m disappointed that it failed. Allowing an unaccountable bureaucracy to regulate a large portion of our economy is a surefire way to kill jobs. Barbara Boxer’s opposition to this measure underscores just how out of touch she is with the reality millions of unemployed Californians face every day. Boxer’s priorities do not reflect the priorities of the people she was elected to represent, who are calling for a laser focus on job creation and economic growth.”

“From the moment I declared my candidacy, over 7,000 volunteers, over 20 coalitions, twelve thousand donors and a tireless, hard-working staff have made this the greatest team effort I have ever been privileged to be a part of.

Carly Makes Final Push as Voters Head to Polls

June 08, 2010

“Today, we are at what Ronald Reagan once called ‘a time for choosing.’ We must all choose to make a difference in Sacramento and in Washington – not separately, but together. It is only in America that a law school dropout and a receptionist could rise to become the chief executive officer of one of the largest companies in the world. That’s the American Dream I want to protect for my grandchildren. …”

Carly Fiorina Endorsed By San Diego-Area Officials

June 07, 2010

“Carly is a true political outsider who understands firsthand the important role fiscal responsibility and accountability will play in making Washington work for the people of this state.

“Over the course of this campaign, we’ve grown a strong network of volunteers and grassroots supporters who are working hard to spread our message and turn out voters at the polls on Tuesday.

Carly Gets Out the Vote in the Central Valley

June 05, 2010

“While I’m thrilled that the momentum in this race has clearly swung in our direction over the last few weeks, now is no time to rest on our laurels. With Election Day approaching quickly, our campaign team is hard at work calling voters and asking them to vote for me at the polls on June 8. Over the last 28 years, Barbara Boxer has consistently failed to serve the people of California and has instead pressed for an agenda that has led to higher taxes, more regulation and greater government intrusion into our lives.”

Carly Gets Out the Vote in San Diego

June 04, 2010

Carly on the National Unemployment Rate

June 04, 2010

Carly, in response to the U.S. Department of Labor’s report that the economy only added 41,000 private-sector jobs in May:

“Last month’s jobs numbers are very disappointing, especially since private-sector job growth was anemic; instead, growth came in the form of temporary government jobs. This is exactly what job creation will look like if Barbara Boxer continues to have her way – job growth dominated by taxpayer-financed government workers.”

In Case You Missed It: Taking Washington Back Starts with Beating Boxer

June 03, 2010

“For the last 34 years, Barbara Boxer has been pushing a far-left agenda that has resulted in more than a trillion dollars in tax increases and massive government expansion. She believes government is always the answer – an ideology that has led to government control over the automotive sector of the economy, the health care sector of the economy and, soon, the energy sector of our economy if her push for job-killing cap-and-trade legislation is successful.”

Carly Issues Statement on Worsening Job Market

June 02, 2010

“Today’s report confirms that the job market has only gotten tougher in the last year – a reality millions of out-of-work Californians have experienced firsthand. Despite Barbara Boxer’s promise to her constituents that the big-government stimulus plan she championed and voted for would keep unemployment below 8 percent, in fact, 11 of the 14 metropolitan areas with unemployment rates greater than 15 percent are right here in California.”
