Everyone Wins with Carly In at the next Debate

The long road to the GOP nomination got a bit more interesting when Carly Fiorina earned a spot on the main stage of this month’s upcoming CNN debate.

Following an exceptional performance in the undercard Fox News debate, Fiorina has experienced a substantial surge in the polls. Ranked in the top 10 in 12 state-based polls (and in the top three in the latest poll out of Iowa), Fiorina has seen her favorability increase by double digits over the last two weeks.

Her participation is a win-win for everyone – from CNN to the GOP to the primary voter.

So why the need for an unnecessary executive order? It’s an election year, and Democrats are struggling with a failed Obamacare launch and public lack of faith in the administration’s ability to keep “promises.” Rather than tackle real problems, the White House has opted to pander to the “war on women” set.
