“Carly stands for a citizen’s government, is a savvy businesswoman, and stands out among the throngs of senators and governors vying for the leadership of our country,” said Rep. David Russell (R-Gilford). “I whole-heartedly support her candidacy for President."


“I am excited about Carly running for president,” said Rep. Valerie Fraser (R-New Hampton). “She is exactly what America needs.”


“The U.S. needs to get it right this time,” said Hillsborough County Commissioner Carol Holden (R-Amherst). “We need to share the REAL Republican success story.  Women are over 53% of the electorate and all issues are women’s issues. The lock that Democrats have on women voters must be broken.


“In Carly Fiorina, we have an articulate advocate for sensible conservative policies that will advance economic growth and effective leadership,” continued Holden.  “Let’s all get behind her candidacy and make sure that her voice is heard on the first debate in August.”


“Carly Fiorina is an exceptionally thoughtful and intelligent proven leader,” said Grafton County Sheriff Doug Dutile (R-Haverhill).  “Her prior experience as a CEO in the private sector, her ability to get things done and her conservative outsider approach will finally change things in Washington for the better. She is exactly what our country needs right now.”


“Carly is proving an effective leader already in this race,” said CARLY For America New Hampshire State Director Kerry Marsh. “A few months ago, Carly was relatively unknown in the Granite State. That is changing. Granite Staters have heard Carly speak and they want to hear more. Capitalizing on her momentum, we are pleased to have these accomplished individuals pledging to support Carly as she proves she has the vision, the experience and the character to unlock this nation’s potential.”
