    Why did a Ted Cruz super PAC give $500,000 to Carly Fiorina’s?

    Why did a Ted Cruz super PAC give $500,000 to Carly Fiorina’s?

    A super PAC supporting former tech executive Carly Fiorina's run reported raising $3.5 million -- with a half-million dollar lift from a super PAC supporting GOP presidential rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.).


    The pro-Cruz PAC, Keep the Promise I, reported the disbursement Friday in a document filed with the Federal Election Commission. That is...unusual, to say the least.



    Cruz has four allied super PACs, all named some variation of “Keep the Promise.” Together they raised an estimated $38 million, according to FEC documents.

    IDEAS
    POLITICS

    Carly Fiorina for (Vice) President!

    Karol Markowicz @karol
    Sept. 17, 2015

    Being a non politician gives her an advantage—until the real campaigning starts

    The GOP usually entertains the idea of the “non politician” right up until it’s time to vote. This time there are three—Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina, two sitting atop the polls and Fiorina making an impact in the news media. Of the three, Carly proven her mettle the most Wednesday night, with detailed policy proposals, while the others present a vague idea of what their presidency would look like. She’s able to drop lines like “good friend Bibi Netanyahu” while Donald Trump says he would “get along with the heads of Mexico” without naming them or explaining why the “heads” of Mexico would get along with him after he builds his much-touted wall along their border.

    And yet the problem for Fiorina is that despite her killer debate performances and her perfect ads, few are taking her seriously as a candidate for president. Is it possible to have a runaway favorite for vice president? If it is, then Carly Fiorina is it.


    At about this point in the 2012 election, Herman Cain was leading in the polls. More Trump than Fiorina, Cain was a successful businessman, he kept his message simple, and he didn’t concern himself with knowing a lot about world politics. (Full disclosure: I worked on Cain’s U.S. Senate race when he ran in Georgia in 2004).

    In 2008, Rudy Giuliani was the runaway favorite. While Giuliani was a politician, he was the successful two-term mayor of New York City who led the city in the time of crisis following the 9/11 attacks; he wasn’t the traditional senator or governor, with experience with statewide races, who we tend to see on the presidential stage.


    What these non politicians have in common is they tend to speak plainly, with language not couched by years of politicking and trying to be many things to many people. The public loves it—but ultimately doesn’t come out and vote for it.

    The liability of the non-politician is they have limited experience running for office. Like Cain, Fiorina has run for U.S. Senate previously and lost.


    Having a winning campaign under your belt is important.

    Structuring an organization, raising money and putting together a strong ground effort in the early states is learned through earlier campaigns, and these skills are much more important than having your face on TV. If Fiorina, or Carson or Trump, wants to stand a chance, they’ll spend their time meeting with precinct captains in Iowa and district leaders in South Carolina, putting together a strong ground game and spending their time on the phone with donors raising money. There’s no doubt the more seasoned politicians in the race are doing those things right now.


    Fiorina is doing something right, and she should keep doing it. On Wednesday night, compared to the other candidates, Carly Fiorina looked like she could go another three hours and not miss a beat.

    Whether Americans are finally ready to take a chance on the non politician, be it Fiorina or the others, remains to be seen.


    Markowicz has a Master’s Degree from NYU in Political Management and also worked on more than 10 political campaigns in four states.

    No, sorry, lying to the American People in a debate for the Presidency of the United States is NEVER RIGHT. It's always wrong. She told a lie about Planned Parenthood with the intention of advancing herself by shutting down the US government. She told a lie about "burying a child" with the sole purpose of advancing herself through a pity party.

    People have to remember that Carly Fiorina didn't even earn a spot on the main debate stage according to the rules. Oh no, she whined to CNN that she wanted to be on the big debate stage and the way the rules were that applied to everyone the same weren't fair to her because she wasn't polling high enough to make the cut, so she wanted to CHANGE the rules to LOWER the standard so she could get on it.

    That's how she thinks, she's never responsible for the outcome, she's never accountable to the results. If she loses, she wants the rules changed. It's just like how she ruins two companies, takes no responsibility for her own actions and their outcomes, and walks away with bonuses and exit packages that are larger than Donald Trump's total inheritance when his father died. I mean, COME ON!

    She won't even take responsibility for her HP selling their products to Iran in violation of US sanctions against Iran, these are electronic parts, very important items to a country trying to ramp up in the nuclear technology age. COME ON! She says "I didn't know", well, it was your job to know. This is the same tactic employers of illegal aliens take "we didn't know they were illegal", OH REALLY?! Well, other people knew, which is how we all found out about it, so what kind of "leader" are you when the world finds out who is buying your products before you do?

    No, you're all just liars, defrauders, and cheaters, and the last thing we need in the GOP race for President is someone who destroyed two companies, sold banned electronics to Iran in violation of the economic sanctions in place against Iran, lies about Planned Parenthood and "burying a child" all to advance themselves in a debate that according to the rules she didn't even qualify to be in to begin with.
