Republican Fiorina takes aim at Clinton in Iowa introduction
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Businesswoman Carly Fiorina is introducing herself to Iowa's Republican voters by drawing contrast with the top prospective candidate on the Democratic side.
Fiorina went hard at Hillary Rodham Clinton in a speech Saturday at the Iowa Freedom Summit. Fiorina cast the former secretary of state as a disappointment on the world stage who failed to defuse serious foreign policy threats.
The former Hewlett-Packard chief executive says she has her own experience dealing with foreign dignitaries and dangers.
As one of the least-known potential candidates, Fiorina devoted ample time to a biographical introduction, including her distinction as a breast cancer survivor.
While presenting herself as a political outsider, it wouldn't be her first run. Fiorina lost an expensive Senate race in California in 2010. She now lives in Virginia.
