Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina stood out Thursday in the first GOP primary debate, taking shots at Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton while showing off her foreign policy acumen.
Fiorina, the only woman among the 17 Republican candidates taking part in Thursday’s two debates, stood out during the GOP undercard for candidates polling outside the Republican top 10.
Minutes into the debate, she took a shot at GOP frontrunner Donald Trump for his connections to Bill and Hillary Clinton.
“I didn’t get a phone call from Bill Clinton before I jumped in the race. Did any of you get a phone call from Bill Clinton? I didn’t,” Fiorina said.
“Maybe it’s because I haven’t given money to the foundation or donated to his wife’s Senate campaign,” she added
.She was referring to reports that Trump, the GOP frontrunner who will be on stage during the prime-time GOP debate, spoke with Bill Clinton ahead of his campaign launch.
