Carly Fiorina Reportedly Angling for RNC Chair

Carly Fiorina Reportedly Angling for RNC Chair

Changing of the guard.

Carly Fiorina is no longer running for president, but it looks like she already has another job in mind. Many people are speculating that she will throw her hat into the ring to replace Reince Priebus as chair of the RNC.

Time reports:

Carly Fiorina Plotting Bid to Chair Republican National Committee

Former HP CEO and 2016 presidential contender Carly Fiorina is actively laying the groundwork for a bid to be the next chair of the Republican National Committee, according to state GOP officials who have followed her plans.

Fiorina and her aides have plotted an aggressive season of travel this fall to states with and without close Republicans races as she looks to help down-ballot Republicans, but people familiar with the plans said she is also looking to curry favor with the influential 168 members of the Republican National Committee. In phone calls and emails, Fiorina has reached out to party chairs across the country as well as RNC committee-men and -women who will elect a successor to incumbent RNC chairman Reince Priebus in January.

“The past few months Carly has been helping out with major races around the country, I know she is planning to reach out to your party chairman in the next week or so, just to touch base and see if there is any way she could be helpful to Republicans in the [Insert State or Territory] this Fall,” a Fiorina advisor wrote to multiple state party executive directors in recent weeks.

What elevated Fiorina’s travel from popular surrogate and fundraiser to that of RNC chair candidate, according to multiple RNC members, was her outreach to the U.S. territories, a particularly powerful voting bloc within the RNC but fall way down on the party’s priority list for the fall. Another source noted that the domains CarlyForChair.com and CarlyForRNC.com were both registered on July 14 at the same time.

FOX News covered the topic on Special Report on Friday:

Of course, there is one person standing in the way of Carly’s goal.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Fiorina will head to Virginia in late August to co-host an event with former RNC chairman Ed Gillespie, who is running for governor of the state in 2017. Morton Blackwell, who has acted as an RNC member for nearly 30 years, will also be in attendance, Politico reported.

Fiorina is banking on a Donald Trump loss in November to launch her leadership bid, Time reported, because the RNC traditionally designates committee chair picks to the incumbent president. Fiorina has so far not formally endorsed Trump.

She has my support.

Ah yes, Carly. I remember her. One of the dozen or so Republican candidates who were all infinitely more qualified to be POTUS than the Cheeto King.

    And yet the only one stupid enough to be Teds VP pick at a time when there was zero chance he would be the nominee.

    Chem_Geek in reply to Paul. | August 14, 2016 at 3:02 am

    Maybe she could crater the RNC just like she did all her other managerial jobs… The BSD (ok, maybe BSO) 1%er MBA CEO Manager FU SOB would be better than any of the other thieves…

I’m still disappointed that we won’t see her rip Clinton to shreds in a presidential debate. It would have been glorious.

“…Fiorina is banking on a Donald Trump loss in November to launch her leadership bid, Time reported, because the RNC traditionally designates committee chair picks to the incumbent president…”

“Time reported” has about the same weight as ‘Read on the wall of a bathroom.”

Fiorina would make a good chair for the RNC to have at about the time Clinton begins her “Vote for me or you’re sexist” campaign in earnest. She is competent, a good speaker, and has no problem delivering the kind of verbal beatdown to the Clinton campaign that her male counterparts shirk away from.

Hey, Carly:
Donald Trump, a.k.a. “Der Donald”, for better or worse, is the nominee of the Republican Party. Hows about working for his election and angling for RNC chair? I believe the level of corruption Hilary brings will be hard to survive.

Maybe you could have a calming, conservative influence on that guy with the hair. Steer him in conservative like positions. Maybe.

From Gateway Pundit
The George Soros international networks has been hacked. It’s either now or soon will be generally available on the internet.
You know various democrat sources have had similar intrusions. Nancy Pelosi returned from a trip to find her messaging board full of obscene suggestions & threats. Her advice to fellow democrats in similar straits, “change your phone numbers.”
Republicans have been similarly hacked. As have other government institutions. D.O.D.
I know some of you realize the implications of all this. What about you stupid #never T-rumpers?
Digital financial systems, electrical & power grids.
Do you still insist on the criminal Hillary Clinton cabal? Hilary & Bill Clinton who sold our uranium resources to the Russians?
Welcome to the revolution you “principled Conservatives” had a hand in creating via your 70 expert signers of the never T-rump petition.

    WikiLeaks is an agent of Russia, and they’re trying to hurt Hillary to install Trump. Neither Trump or Hillary are acceptable. The Never Trumpers just saw this early on.

      I don’t think “neither” is a ballot choice.
      One option is don’t vote. If that’s your choice, why make such a big deal about it? Just don’t vote or vote 3rd party.

      Given the botch job “principled conservative’s” have made of being in opposition, it’s highly unlikely I’ll ever vote for anyone who runs under that label again. To me, “principled conservatism” means an unending dirge featuring carping & bitching when you don’t get your way. That’s hardly a recommendation for me to vote for you. Given what’s happened so far, I’ll bet I’m not alone in that intention.

      Trump may not be ideal but he is the only viable option to Criminal Clinton in this election. This election is too important to piss it away indulging in histrionics to make yourself feel superior.

        I don’t think “neither” is a ballot choice.
        —————————————————-

        Of course it is. It ALWAYS is, and it is this time like never before.

        http://www.weeklystandard.com/bail-out-on-the-ballot/article/2003694

        That’s a very valid argument for doing precisely that. Neither stinking, lying, pathological Collectivist thugs is worthy of anyone’s vote.

        And NOBODY has to chose between them, or make a value judgment about who is “best”. They are both wrong.

          I read your article. Another anti trump website, in fear of losing their gravy train, using the lefts tactics, once again, to try and make their case.

          “What if they gave a war and nobody came?”

          So much BS proffered by the ignorant.

          Now, I’ll go wash my hands.

        I stand by what I wrote as I wrote it. “Neither” is not printed on the ballot. The rest of my statement follows from that truth.
        I’ll not access the weakly standard which requires you to log in to read the article. I’ll not do so and add to the traffic of their now failing endeavor. They can die as their traffic declines & their revenue falls as a result.

        I’d never hire a “lawyer” who is incapable of communicating in a manner that would bring clarity & purpose to my action. A “lawyer” whose obvious purpose is to add to his billable hours. I’d never hire a “lawyer” whose obvious purpose is his own misguided ego. A “lawyer” who’d alienate a significant portion of the people involved in the proceedings.

        Such a “lawyer” makes for a piss poor advocate. Such a “lawyer” inflames people into opposition. Such a “lawyer” cannot control his own emotions or deportment. Such a “lawyer” is characteristic of a “lawyer” who looses.

        Ragspierre in reply to secondwind. | August 14, 2016 at 10:30 am

        First, there is no pay-wall at the link provided.

        Second, you should have found a way to say “lawyer” another five or six times.

        Third, any lawyer or other protagonist who is so blinkered that they won’t even review the other side’s arguments is, indeed, prone to lose. Every. Time. Loser.

        Forth, I don’t need printed instructions to tell me I have a right to think and act, nor do I for an instant think that my choices are as limited as you…a devout cultist and hater of conservative principles who has destroyed his life by a series of terrible choices…tell me they are. The insistence of T-rump sucking cultists that I run down their cattle chute is disgusting.

        Screw that.

        And finally, take note that I did not attack you, but made a cogent argument, which you responded to exactly with the kind of attack you attribute to me.

        Heh…!!!

        That sounds like a pretty good set of prescriptions to me. I dunno if the GOP can be saved, or if it deserves to be.

        I do know this; if there isn’t a place in it for conservatives, it’s time we formed a party/organization/interest group that will provide a power-base for conservative ideas and ideals.

        We aren’t going to follow or even countenance T-rumpism.

      #NeverTrumpers don’t see anything but the inside of their colon

DieJustAsHappy | August 13, 2016 at 9:37 pm

Given that the current presidential choice is between “There HE goes again” and “There SHE goes again,” it would seem that the next four years will be even more critical for the GOP regardless of the occupant of the Oval Office.

Carly Fiorina. I dunno. She had her moments, yet that’s about all they amounted to, so I dunno about heading the RNC.

No chance.

This rumor is not that new, nevertheless, my first reaction is So many WTF posts so little time.

Her plan relies on Trump losing?

Isn’t it repugnant to rely on a GOP candidate losing? She may be tempted to help the result.
She seems to be planning on losing this electio0n, so that she can preside over the next election loss.
Isn’t it a demonstration on her poor planning to depend on an election result?

    NbyNW in reply to RodFC. | August 14, 2016 at 1:15 am

    Trump is losing, and acknowledging that is realistic, not repugnant. The only one that can change that around is Trump, and he’s not interested. He’s already making excuses for his impending loss.

Carly can’t be worse than Prince Reebus.

    murkyv in reply to Zachary. | August 14, 2016 at 10:37 am

    At least Priebus recognizes that a record 13 million people voted for the nominee in the Primaries.

    If Snarly can’t accept the voters choice, she needs to drop off the stage. (again)

Her presiding over the destruction of Lucent and HP wasn’t enough of an example of her incompetence? She now plans on heading the Republican party and remove all doubt?

    Chem_Geek in reply to RodFC. | August 14, 2016 at 3:06 am

    She’s rich, and a 1%er MBA CEO Manager. That should be enough for Republicans and Conservatives to lick her boots and worship her.

      murkyv in reply to Chem_Geek. | August 14, 2016 at 10:41 am

      Have you been in a coma for the past 20 years?

      Democrats are the party of the 1%ers. And instead of making their billions in business, they now get a good chunk of their wealth from the taxpayers and from enemies of the US

    Ragspierre in reply to RodFC. | August 14, 2016 at 5:27 am

    Last I looked, HP was “undestroyed” and doing quite well.

So we are going to make person who became the face of globalization as a business practice, when we just had a primary where the major theme wining overwhelmingly was anti-globalization? Good plan.

She’s just another crying boehner, but without the booze.

What has this woman done to rate her leading the RNC other than she’s not that rino a-hole Prebus?

DieJustAsHappy | August 14, 2016 at 9:21 am

Should Team Trump not make the grade in November, perhaps Mike Pence might be a better choice than Carly Fiorina.

Here’s one that will warm the hearts of the neverTrump crowd, at the neverTrump center NRO:

      Little Wonder why you and the neverTrump contingent suffer from teh TDS, you are so easily led by the nose.

      Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | August 15, 2016 at 2:51 pm

      But we’re not the idiots who think that the Great God Cheeto is going to bring back steel mill jobs to the valleys of Pennsylvania.

      It won’t happen UNLESS he mandates it by law. That’s called a “command economy”.

      You mow-rons are the ones with TDS, and you suck. Not that I hate you. Nothin’ but love…

        Barry in reply to Ragspierre. | August 15, 2016 at 7:50 pm

        “Not that I hate you. Nothin’ but love…”

        Kisses to you too, Rags.

        You really know little about economics apparently. A “command economy” is not required to make American companies competitive again.

          Ragspierre in reply to Barry. | August 16, 2016 at 12:14 am

          And you know NOTHING about economics. A command economy CANNOT make anything “competitive”. The whole idea is to remove crony firms from competitive forces.

          Poor idiot.
