Twenty-six Texas leaders are endorsing GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina. The move comes as Fiorina returns to Texas, her home state, to speak at the National Women’s Business Conference in San Antonio.

Former Texas Comptroller and Treasurer Susan Combs is leading the Texas leadership team for Fiorina.

“Carly Fiorina is strong, knowledgeable, and driven by a passion for her country and its future. I trust her to be the strong leader this nation so desperately needs.  She has the essential capacity to tell the truth and deliver it in a way that demonstrates her ability to turn this country around.  We need Carly Fiorina,” Combs said.

Former Deputy Comptroller Martin Hubert and Former President of the Texas Federation of Republican Women Carolyn Hodges are joining Combs in their support of Fiorina.

“Nations need honest and transparent leadership. Carly Fiorina not only has a vision for how our global economy can be led with excellence, she has the management skills to execute that vision. Her character and experience as an articulate leader will serve America well,” stated Hubert.

Hodges adds, “Carly Fiorina, a dynamic and passionate woman, would serve our great country by placing the U.S. on the proper course for the future.  She is skilled, brilliant, and motivated to move the U.S. to a better standing in our complicated world.  We should all be ready to stand with Carly Fiorina, a compelling candidate.”

Others supporting Fiorina in the Lone Star State are: Paula Mann, founder of Sunbelt Telecommunications; Carol Nichols, founder of Circle C Ventures; and Kristin Kaufum, Founder of Alignment Inc.

Texas Republican leaders Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne as well as Texas State Representative Patricia Harless are also joining the Texas Leadership team for Fiorina.
