GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s response on behalf of the Republican Party to President Obama’s State of the Union address “was the wrong note.”

“I think you’re correct that it was the wrong note,” Fiorina said during an interview with conservative radio host Mike Gallagher. “President Obama tried to tell us that everything’s okay, that things are getting better, and the vast majority of Americans know…it’s not okay.”

Haley’s been criticized by conservatives for two parts of her speech on Tuesday night, as Mediaite notes. Many Republicans dislike the fact that she bashed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and said the Republican Party shares responsibility with President Obama on immigration reform and other political divisive issues.

Fiorina said during the interview that she believes a career politician won’t solve the nation’s problems and that she disagrees with the establishment and elitists from both the Republican and Democrat parties.

“I [go] out there and talk everyday to Americans that it is time to take our country back, and our government back, and our future back,” Fiorina charged.
