Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson Joining the Republican Presidential Race

Californians learned the truth about Carly Fiorina’s record when she ran for U.S. Senate as a corporate job-killer who laid off nearly 30,000 Americans while her company lost half its value. Now it’s Americans’ turn, and they won’t be fooled by a failed CEO who took a $42 million payout when she was fired. 

Fiorina’s and right-wing commentator Ben Carson’s entry into the Republican presidential primary gives voters two new choices of millionaire neophytes to join the Tea Party extremists and corporate-owned candidates already in the Republican race. 

The super-rich have found new champions, but ordinary Americans should beware.
