Carly Fiorina, the first female CEO of a Fortune 50 business and former candidate for U.S. Senate, rallied with nearly a thousand Kansas women in Wichita and Overland Park Tuesday in support of Governor Sam Brownback.
Fiorina, who began her career as a secretary and was eventually named the CEO of Hewlett-Packard, is a cancer survivor, humanitarian, and philanthropist, and now travels the country speaking about the empowering nature of conservative principles.
“I think Kansas is a great example of conservative policies working to lift people up,” Fiorina said, explaining her endorsement of Governor Brownback.
Fiorina praised the governor’s leadership in transforming Kansas into a more business friendly atmosphere, while simultaneously investing in education and balancing the state budget.
“Thanks to Governor Brownback’s pro-growth tax cuts, Kansas is open for business again with an environment primed for economic growth, a thing good for all Kansans,” said Fiorina. “The economy has already added more than 58,000 jobs and the state has a record number of new businesses.”
Governor Brownback and Lt. Governor Colyer attended the Wichita luncheon and Overland Park rally hosted by the Women for Brownback coalition and the Republican House Campaign Committee.
“I’m honored to have the support of such a passionate advocate for the hard work and innovation that make our Kansas economy thrive,” said Governor Brownback.
Fiorina noted her two-fold endorsement of the Governor: “Because of his bold conservatism and moral leadership, I am proud to be in Kansas supporting his re-election.”
