Carly Fiorina doesn’t rule out another run for office. But from where?

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO and 2010 California GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina told the National Press Club this week that she “has not ruled out another run for office” after her unsuccessful challenge to liberal Democrat Barbara Boxer.  But a fair question for Fiorina if she still wants to run for office again, is from where? and other profiles still list Fiorina’s residence as Palo Alto, however, Fiorina is well-known by political insiders to have been living the last few years on the East Coast, from where she worked as Vice-Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee in Washington, D.C. during the disappointing 2012 Presidential and Senate elections.  Fiorina owns a home in Lorton, Virginia.  Fiorina is engrained enough in Lorton that the Republican Governor of Virginia has appointed her to the Board of Visitors of James Madison University, a state supported school, whose website lists Fiorina as a resident not of Palo Alto, but of Lorton.

According to the Federal Election Commission, Fiorina still owes $736,000 in unpaid debts from the 2010 race in California.  Fiorina contributed $5 million of her own funds to make the race against Boxer, having received a $21 million severance package after being forced out as Chairman and CEO of HP.  Fiorina’s tenure at HP was controversial.  According to CNN, shares of HP jumped 6.9 percent in heavy trading on the New York Stock Exchange the day her ouster was announced.  At one point, the stock was up as much as 10.5 percent.  “The stock is up a bit on the fact that nobody liked Carly’s leadership all that much,” said Robert Cihra, an analyst with Fulcrum Global Partners. “The Street had lost all faith in her and the market’s hope is that anyone will be better.”

Fiorina has recently had better luck as a favored main stream media “talking head” on Sunday television news shows, all East Coast-based.  Since Fiorina was a candidate, California Republicans have lost every statewide constitutional office and both U.S. Senate seats.  Our guess is that if Fiorina is going to run for office sometime in the future, it won’t be from Palo Alto.

    That’s a lot of talk for useless information —so I guess we have to put up with Boxer and Feinstein until they die off??? OMG!
