Carly Fiorina Draws Interest From Undecided Ohio Republicans< < Back to
CINCINNATI (AP) – Carly Fiorina’s performance in the second Republican prime-time presidential debate is turning heads among some undecided GOP activists in swing-state Ohio.
A sampling in a Republican stronghold area finds that the former CEO is getting added to lists of potential favorites. Activists praise the command of issues and confident debating style displayed by the former head of Hewlett-Packard on Wednesday night.
Warren County GOP chairman Ray Warrick says a post-debate straw poll at a tea party group’s watch party put Fiorina at the top.
Veteran conservative Lori Viars in Warren County says she plans to learn more about Fiorina’s track record as she makes up her mind about the crowded field.
Attracting early support from such activists can help contenders start building their Ohio campaigns for 2016.
