A Statement From Carly Fiorina's Campaign

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on September 30, 2009

I received the following from Beth Miller, a spokesperson for the campaign, regarding this post:

When she filed with the IRS to open a “testing the waters” committee in August, Carly indicated she would be meeting with a variety of policy makers, local leaders and business owners from around the state. Since then she has met with many people and her visit to Fresno yesterday was a continuation of that effort.

“As you noted in your article last week, Carly is in her final weeks of radiation treatment, which is administered daily. Her schedule needs to accommodate those treatments and make allowances for the cumulative fatigue that occurs towards the end of the course of treatment. For that reason, the decision was made that she not attend the CRP convention this year but, should she run, Carly is looking forward to seeing folks at the February convention. In the meantime, she will continue to take day trips with a limited schedule, like she did in Fresno, in order to meet with people and hear first hand their concerns about our state and our country.

Of course, everyone wishes Ms. Fiorina a swift, complete, and successful recovery.

UPDATE: I will offer people this report of an interview conducted with Fiorina. Below is a map, containing red circles that detail where Fiorina has been (Palo Alto for radiation treatments, and Fresno for campaigning), and southern California, where the GOP convention was being held in Indian Wells. Basically, the Fiorina people state that they could not have traveled all the way down to Indian Wells after radiation treatments in Palo Alto, while travel to Fresno was more feasible. The DeVore people disagree. Where you come down on the issue will determine what argument you accept.
