Key GOP Senators Endorse Fiorina

Eight influential Republican senators jumped on board former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina’s California Senate campaign Thursday, a day after she officially launched her bid.

Those endorsing Fiorina included Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.; Assistant Minority Leader Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.; 2008 presidential nominee John McCain, R-Calif.; Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; and Maine Sens. Susan Collins and Olympia J. Snowe. All cited her experience as a business leader.

In his statement, McCain praised Fiorina’s service as an adviser during his presidential bid. “I benefited from her no-nonsense way of getting things done when she served on my campaign last year,” he said.
