Fresno Small Business Owner on Why Carly Should Win

August 10, 2010

Scott Miller, Owner, Gazebo Gardens
I had the pleasure of welcoming senate candidate Carly Fiorina and representatives from the U.S., California and local Fresno Chambers of Commerce, to my nursery today.

Job Creators Reject 28 Years of Boxer’s Failed Leadership, Endorse Carly

August 09, 2010

“For 28 long years, Barbara Boxer has failed to fight for jobs, failed to fight for policies that spur economic growth and failed to fight for American companies. Today we are rejecting Boxer’s nearly three decades of failed leadership and antagonism toward California’s businesses,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President and National Political Director Bill Miller.

Carly Stands with Farmers and Ranchers Against Tax Hikes

August 06, 2010

“In the midst of one of the worst economic downturns in a generation, California families simply cannot afford to pay an additional $1,600 in higher taxes next year. And California family farms and ranches – who have already suffered a one-two punch from a bad economy and restricted water flow to the Central Valley – can’t afford to be saddled with a 55 percent death tax,” said Fiorina. “Today, I join these hard-working farmers and ranchers in urging Barbara Boxer to stand against the largest tax hike in American history.”

Carly Hosts Roundtable with Asian American Business Leaders

August 04, 2010

Carly Opposes Nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court

August 04, 2010

“I believe the Senate’s duty to ‘advise and consent’ requires a thorough review of judicial nominees and their records. I closely followed the Senate’s confirmation hearings and have taken time to carefully consider how I would vote on Elena Kagan’s nomination were I a member of the Senate today.”

Boxer’s “Stimulus”: Nothing But An Empty Lot

August 03, 2010

“As the economy has slowed, consumer spending has fallen flat and unemployment sits at record highs, Barbara Boxer has the audacity to continue to look Californians in the eye and claim the stimulus is working. There’s no doubt the $862 billion taxpayer-funded stimulus package has failed to deliver the jobs Barbara Boxer promised it would; today, we’re learning even more about the egregious spending authorized under the plan.”

July 30, 2010

 
Pat Buchanan: “The governor’s race in California is a big one. Whitman’s got all that money, and she’s gonna be driving and Jerry Brown has slipped a bit. Or they are running about even I guess, if she runs  very strong. Boxer has never run real strong. I think there’s a real chance Carly Fiorina [...]

PPIC Poll Confirms Boxer’s Vulnerability, Declining Support

July 28, 2010

“This poll is good news, and it confirms what an increasing number of election watchers have recently noted: despite being known by nearly all Californians, despite having been a politician for more than three decades and despite her millions of dollars in stockpiled campaign cash, support for Barbara Boxer is declining, the race is tightening, and Carly Fiorina has a clear opportunity to defeat her this November.” — Deputy Campaign Manager Julie Soderlund

Iraq Vet Condemns Boxer's Most Recent Anti-Military Remarks

July 26, 2010

“Barbara Boxer’s disrespectful comments underscore just how out of touch she has become after her 28 years in Washington. Equating the experiences of members of Congress with those of brave soldiers who have fought to defend our country is just the latest example in a failed career marked by disrespect for our men and women in uniform.”–Lt. Commander Paul Chabot, Veterans for Carly Co-Chairman

Carly Issues Statement on Record Deficit

July 23, 2010

“Today’s report underscores just how deep a pit Barbara Boxer and Washington have dug for the people of this country. Under their watch, unemployment continues to soar, and we now know our federal deficit will reach a record $1.47 trillion this year. Still, Boxer remains intent on spending even more of taxpayers’ money and continues to talk about even more earmarks and even more government growth.”

Kern County Leaders Spearhead Democrats and Independents Coalition

July 21, 2010

“Carly Fiorina will be an outstanding U.S. senator, and I am thrilled to endorse her campaign today. Carly has been clear from the start that her focus on Day One in Washington will be to create jobs and grow our economy – the two issues most important to our fellow Californians. I’m equally impressed by Carly’s commitment to restoring water flow to Central Valley farmers and communities, and I know she will be a terrific advocate for our state in the U.S. Senate.”–Former Kern County Supervisor Pete Parra

Carly Hosts Roundtable with Bay Area Businesswomen

July 20, 2010

“California’s unemployment rate is among the worst in the nation, and more than 2 million of our fellow Californians remain out of work – underscoring the abject failure of Barbara Boxer’s big-government policies to create the jobs she promised.

Boxer’s ‘solution’ to our unemployment crisis is to further burden taxpayers to fund more growth in government. This view is dangerous for the long-term health of our economy, and it is both unsustainable and unworkable if our goal is real growth.”

Carly Issues Statement on California Unemployment

July 16, 2010

“The news today that 27,600 Californians lost their jobs and private-sector job growth remained extremely weak last month underscores the fact that big-government policies that depend on temporary, taxpayer-funded government jobs will not provide the foundation of growth we need in order to experience a true economic recovery. Still, Barbara Boxer and her fellow Democrats in Congress continue to press for the budget-busting entitlements, job-killing regulations and higher taxes that drive jobs out of state. As a result, 2.24 million Californians remain unemployed today, and 13 of the top 20 most stressed counties in the nation are right here in California. Only an out-of-touch career politician like Barbara Boxer could witness such a crisis of joblessness and declare victory; it’s clear she’s interested in only one job in California: her own. That’s why I am running to replace her this November.”

Carly Brings Jobs Tour to L.A.

July 16, 2010

“Today we received the disappointing news that 27,600 Californians lost their jobs last month – further proof that temporary government jobs do not provide the foundation of growth we need in order to experience a true economic recovery. Sadly, this is only the latest in a string of disappointing reports we have received about the state of our economy over the last several months.

Despite the fact that Californians are staring 12.3 percent unemployment in the face, Barbara Boxer continually refuses to implement the pragmatic policies we need in order support the small-businesses and entrepreneurs who will help create jobs and grow the economy. That’s why I am running to replace her this November.”

Asian Americans for Carly Chair on Joining Carly's Team

July 16, 2010

“Carly has truly lived the American dream, and understands what it takes to create a job and to build a strong economy today and for future generations. With 12.4 percent statewide unemployment, we need a leader in Washington who has real world business experience and not an out of touch career politician. Barbara Boxer has been in Washington for 28 years and has only a record of increased regulation, higher taxes and bigger government to show for it.”–Ann Hoang Fogliani, Statewide Chair, Asian Americans for Carly

Carly on Senate Passage of Financial Reform Bill

July 15, 2010

Click here to download Carly’s plan for financial reform.

“While there is no doubt our nation’s financial sector is in need of serious reform, I am disappointed that the bill passed by the Senate today will do little to fundamentally resolve the problems that led to our nation’s financial meltdown or to prevent another one from happening in the future. Creating a new layer of bureaucracy on top of an existing, fundamentally flawed regulatory structure will cost more money without delivering results. Unfortunately that is so often how Washington addresses big and complex issues – with a political Band-Aid rather than an effective and lasting solution.”

Survey USA Poll: Carly Leads Boxer 47% to 45%

July 12, 2010

“Barbara Boxer has consistently failed to deliver results for the people of California, and with unemployment at a sky-high 12.4 percent, Californians have clearly had enough. Today’s poll confirms that voters see right through Boxer’s Election Year rhetoric and are rejecting her empty promises, turning instead to support a common-sense problem-solver with a proven track record of creating jobs.”

State of the California Senate Race

July 12, 2010

Political Experts And The Media Have Noticed Boxer’s Sliding Position In The Polls and Carly’s Historic Chance To Beat Barbara Boxer:

“Most interesting upset? That’s really a great question. I think it may be Carly Fiorina beating Boxer. … Because Boxer has always had an ability to come back and savage and distort her opponents. And I think that in Fiorina, she may have an opponent who is smart enough and disciplined enough that she can’t do it. And if she can’t, I think Boxer’s probably gone.”–Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich

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.”

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.

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.”

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 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.”

Carly Fiorina, once the most powerful businesswoman in America and now a Republican candidate for the California Senate seat now held by Barbara Boxer, no longer sports her trademark, playful blond pixie cut.
