Carly Fiorina lost her California Senate race- a race she appeared to be making shockingly competitive in the big, deep blue state on the Left Coast- because of a commercial Barbara Boxer's campaign ran painting her in similar terms- and as an incompetent CEO to boot. Trump supporters (displaying a disregard for the consequences of providing the Democrats with November ammunition against someone who might well turn out to be the Republican nominee reminiscent of the self-centered MO of their candidate) have adopted the same talking points.
In fact, Fiorina was the head of Hewlett Packard at a time when the tech sector was going through its roughest patch in history- and managed to amass a record not without its extremely impressive side. Taking a cue from the Romney experience, Carly is undertaking an effort to get her side of the story out there well in advance of a potential general election campaign- and in time to take some of the wind out of the sails of Trump's campaign to suggest that they'd better nominate him because all the alternatives have cooties.
