Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-KS) is endorsing GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina. Jenkins will serve as Fiorina’s co-chair in Kansas, according to the Kansas City Star.
Jenkins is ranked fifth among Republican leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“As a CPA who practiced public accounting for nearly 20 years before coming to Congress, I recognize when a system is as badly broken as Washington is, it is best to look to the outside for a new direction,” Jenkins wrote in a released statement.
Carly Fiorina is exactly the strong, steady, no nonsense businesswoman that our nation so desperately needs. Starting as a secretary and fighting her way to the very top, it is clear this is not a woman who was handed things. She had to fight for every bit of success she has achieved.
She is proof the American dream still exists. When I think of the critical challenges our nation faces, whether its job creation domestically or thuggish dictators and terror networks internationally, I can think of no one better to face them down than Carly Fiorina.
