Fiorina to Take Swipe at Hillary

Des Moines, Iowa — Carly Fiorina will take aim at Hillary Clinton in her remarks at Saturday’s Iowa Freedom Summit. The remarks touch on matters from abortion to foreign policy and aim to position Fiorina as a conservative on a spectrum of policy issues.

While some potential Republican candidates are taking swipes at each other, Fiorina will aim her fire at the likely Democratic nominee.

“I too have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe,” Fiorina will say, according to prepared remarks obtained by National Review Online. “But unlike her, I have actually accomplished something. Mrs. Clinton, flying is an activity, not an accomplishment. I have met Vladimir Putin and know that it will take more to halt his ambitions than a gimmicky red ‘Reset’ button.”  

Fiorina will go on to tout her accomplishments as the first female chief executive of a Fortune 50 company, as chairwoman of the Central Intelligence Agency’s external advisory board, and as president of the nonprofit group Opportunity International. 

Fiorina, who has openly expressed her interest in a 2016 presidential bid, is using her nonprofit group as a shadow campaign organization, hiring staff and building the infrastructure to support a run if she decides to pull the trigger.
