Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina announced her run for the White House today on Good Morning America.
Fiorina, 60, becomes the fourth entrant to vie for the Republican nomination, and the only woman on the GOP side of the race so far.
“I think I am the best person for the job,” Fiorina declared to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, “because I understand how the economy actually works. I understand the world, who’s in it, how the world works.”
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Fiorina said, “clearly is not trustworthy, about a whole set of thing.”
“She peddled a fiction about [Benghazi] for a month, she hasn’t been transparent about her server and her emails, and now we see now all of these foreign government donations to the Clinton Global Initiative.”
Fiorina’s last bid for public office, the 2010 California Senate campaign, failed to unseat incumbent Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), who is retiring at the end of this Congress.
She plans an online town hall forum today before hitting early states Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
