The New York Times is doing a great deal of digging on candidates' financial issues, including exposing Sen. Marco Rubio's youthful spending habits, but GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina wishes the newspaper would spend more time digging into the Clintons' finances.

"I wish they would do a story more on what Bill and Hillary Clinton have been doing with their money," Fiorina told the Fox News program "America's Newsroom"
on Wednesday. "Honestly, the question I think now for the Clintons is what else don't we know."

It's still not known about donors or conflicts of interest involving the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, said Fiorina, and "we are finding so little of the charitable donations go to charitable work.'

According to The Times, a review of the Rubio family's finances included "significant debts; a penchant to spend heavily on luxury items like the [$80,000 speed] boat and the lease of a $50,000 2015 Audi Q7; a strikingly low savings rate, even when Mr. Rubio was earning large sums; and inattentive accounting that led to years of unpaid local government fees."

"Marco Rubio bought a fishing boat," said Fiorina. "I would much rather know about the conflict of interest between the Swedish government and our former secretary of state."

Also on Wednesday, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive officer, who is campaigning in New Hampshire this week, told Fox that her ratings have grown and her candidacy is "gaining momentum."

She said that she has been on the offensive against Clinton because she believes the former secretary of state will be her party's nominee, and she disagrees with her policies.

"I believe we are in a fight for the future of this nation," she said. "I think it is an important fight."

In addition, said Fiorina of Clinton, "she is not trustworthy, has no track record of leadership, and we need a leader in the White House who is prepared to serve the nation and unlock the nation and be trusted."

That will require transparency and an understanding of the world and technology, said Fiorina, and "someone that understands executive decision making and leadership. I am not afraid to fight because I think this is a fight."

Fiorina also commented on Obama's revelation of not having a strategy against the Islamic State (ISIS). The latest news, that more than 400 special forces will be sent to the Anbar province to help train Iraqi troops, is another example of the president doing "everything too little, too late."

"Everything announced in the fight against ISIS, even when he said arm rebels in Syria or arm the Kurds, it dribbles out slowly as circumstances on the ground are changing," she said. "I wish President Obama would hold a Camp David summit with the allies and ask them what they need."
