Carly Fiorina’s GOP Debate Text Leaked in Advance

Carly Fiorina’s closing statement in the presidential debate on Thursday was leaked onto social media hours before she took the stage, after the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive–or her staff–left the text on a printer.

The consensus among social media, viewers and pundits was that she won anyway.

According to Business Insider, her remarks were found on a hotel printer and posted to Twitter by her rival Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)’s communications director Sergio Gor. He did not mention her name:

Fiorina’s closing statements mirrored the leaked document, confirming the paper belonged to her:

Hillary Clinton lies about Benghazi. She lies about emails. She is still defending Planned Parenthood and she is still her party’s front-runner. 2016 is going to be a fight between conservatism and a Democrat Party that is undermining the very character of this nation. We need a nominee who is going to throw every punch, not pull punches, and someone who cannot stumble before he even gets into the ring. I am not a member of the political class. I am a conservative. I can win this job. I can do this job. I need your help. I need your support. I will, with your help and support, lead the resurgence of this great nation. Thank you.

During the debate, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) seemed to compliment Fiorina, saying he would have preferred to have her negotiating the Iran deal than Secretary of State John Kerry. “Maybe we wouldn’t have gotten a deal where we wouldn’t have given everything away,” Kerry said.
