Fiorina: Don’t Vote For Clinton Just Because She’s A Woman

Ted Cruz’s newly named vice-presidential running mate, Carly Fiorina, agrees with Donald Trump that Hillary Clinton is playing the “woman card,” The Hill reported.

Trump made the allegation Tuesday night, after he won several Republican primaries by wide margins. “Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote,” he said. “The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card.”

The billionaire real-estate developer and former television entertainer accused Clinton of exploiting her gender to appeal to voters who want a woman to become president. Others argue that the former secretary of state loses more support due to misogyny than she gains because of her gender.

Fiorina told MSNBC: “I think that Hillary Clinton sometimes says to people, ‘Vote for me because I’m a woman. I would never say to somebody, ‘Vote for me because I’m a woman.’ I would say, ‘Vote for me, vote for Ted, because you think we’re qualified and principled.’”

Cruz made the unusual decision to choose a running mate months before the Republican national convention in an attempt to revive his campaign. Trump appears destined to reach the convention with the most delegates, though he may fall short of the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the party’s nomination in the first round of balloting.
