Endorsement for Carly Fiorina

The Hispanic Leadership Fund today announced that its Political Action Committee endorses Carly Fiorina, who is running for the U.S. Senate in California for the seat currently held by Barabara Boxer.  The statement from HLF President Mario H. Lopez:

“Californians of all backgrounds have had enough of Barbara Boxer’s 18 years of failed policies as a Senator.  Boxer’s bitterly divisive brand of politics are a disservice to the people of California, and her support of backward economic policies have had devastating effects on job creation and economic opportunity throughout California and the nation.

“Latinos start small businesses at a rate three times that of the general population, and Barbara Boxer’s hostility to small and family-owned businesses hurts Californians in search of opportunity.  Boxer has shown a deep disdain for Latino workers, deriding them as ‘cheap foreign labor’ when she voted to kill immigration reform.  Boxer chooses radical ideology over the livelihood of people struggling to earn a piece of the American Dream—exemplified by her support of crippling regulations that have caused a crisis in California’s Central Valley.

“Carly Fiorina will take a fresh perspective to the Senate and will be a leader who supports job growth and will fight to reign in an out of control government that prevents people from making a better life for themselves.  Carly is someone who Californians can count on to vote for forward-thinking solutions that create opportunity and give Californians more control over their pocketbooks and their lives.  The Hispanic Leadership Fund’s Political Action Committee proudly stands with Carly Fiorina.”
