Fiorina: Rand ‘Outside the Mainstream’ of GOP, Rubio Would Be Good VP

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina stated that while Rand Paul “is outside the mainstream of this party,” Marco Rubio “would make a great veep” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

Fiorina said of Rand, “I think he is outside the mainstream of this party. And I think we are a nation that must always [face] outward into the world. When we are not leading, which doesn’t mean rushing off to war, the world is a far more dangerous and tragic place.”

Fiorina added that Marco Rubio is “a politician with a great future” and “would make a great veep.” She also said that it was “difficult for people to think about a Bush III” when asked about Jeb Bush.

She also said that Scott Walker has “a lot of grit and a lot of heart” and praised Ted Cruz as “a very smart man. And I think that being president requires unifying the country.”

Fiorina also criticized President Obama as someone with an ideology “so foreign to what I believe this country is about” and “no experience” in real leadership. She further argued that Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambitions outweigh her “ability to be an effective leader.”
