Carly Fiorina to Announce Presidential Bid May 4

By    |   Wednesday, 22 April 2015 06:12 PM

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina will announce her GOP presidential bid in a no-frills online declaration May 4, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Following the digital breakout, Fiorina will hold a conference call for the national press, the Journal reports, citing an unnamed source.

She plans no public events on Day 1 of her campaign, and won't immediately stump in the early nominating states, the Journal says.

Instead, Fiorina will be in New York when she announces her campaign and will speak May 5 at Techcrunch’s Disrupt NY 2015 conference — along with sitting down for cable TV interviews as part of her new book launch, the Journal notes.

On May 7, Fiorina will get onto the campaign trail in West Des Moines, Iowa, at an event for the Dallas County GOP. She's also set to appear at a dinner hosted by the New Hampshire High Tech Summit in Manchester, and will be commencement speaker at Southern New Hampshire University’s undergraduate ceremony May 9, also in Manchester, where Barack Obama spoke in 2007.

Fiorina joins Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio who have also declared their candidacies, albeit with a lot more fanfare.

But it will be a busy week for other White House-minded Republicans, too: Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson also is set to declare his bid May 4 at an event in his hometown of Detroit, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has an event planned May 5 in his native Hope, Arkansas.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also launched her Democratic campaign via an online video and email to donors, though she followed up with low-key appearances in both Iowa and New Hampshire.

Fiorina, a Republican nominee for Senate from California in 2010, has never held elected office, and will have to make a steep uphill climb to the top of the GOP pack: A CNN poll Monday showed only 2 percent of Republican voters picked her as their first choice for president.
