Carly Fiorina Says the GOP Must Attack Hillary Clinton

The only female GOP presidential hopeful so far, Carly Fiorina, says that Republicans will lose the White House if they become fearful of throwing rhetorical punches at Hillary Clinton. On Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, Fiorina told host Matt Boyle that Hillary Clinton’s scandals are “going to hang around for a long time,” but “in the end they won’t make that much difference unless we have a nominee who will ensure that they make a difference in the general election.” She also said they need to learn from Sen. John McCain ’s 2008 loss and Mitt Romney’s 2012 defeat. Both candidates were told not to attack President Barack Obama.

Fiorina added “We need a nominee who will challenge Hillary Clinton unrelentingly. We have seen in two past elections when our nominee won’t throw the punch, that’s a problem… so we need a nominee who will throw punches at Hillary Clinton, and there are plenty of punches to throw.” Fiorina also stated that the Clintons always “cast aspersions of their accusers but they never really ever get around to answering the questions.” She argued “When they finally get around to answering an allegation or a question they immediately say it’s the vast right-wing conspiracy, they’re wildly inaccurate accusations."

When it comes to getting the right GOP nominee, she stated that it must be “someone who understand leadership requires… tough calls in tough times with high stakes for which you’re prepared to stand to be held accountable.” But she said that the “highest calling of leadership not about power or position,” but about “unlocking potential in others, and we need a leader who will unlock the potential of this nation.” In terms of the debates, Fiorina said she is “working really hard… getting out there making sure people know who I am” because “my name ID started out lower than anyone else’s.”
