Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, said on "Fox News Sunday" that the likelihood that she will run for president is "higher than 90 percent."
As The Hill reported
, Fiorina said her announcement would likely come in late April or early May.
"We need to make sure we have the right time in place, that we have the right support, that we have the right financial resources lined up, just as all the other candidates have done," she said.
Fiorina said that as a candidate she would tout her record of business success — highlighting her ability to manage large bureaucracies and make tough executive decisions.
"I have a deep understanding of how the economy actually works, having started as a secretary and become the chief executive of the largest technology company in the world."
Throughout the interview with show host Chris Wallace, Fiorina put the economy first, and did so by talking about small and family-owned business. She said that the government was "crushing small businesses" while big banks on Wall Street were thriving.
Fiorina affected a consistently populist tone, saying, "If we want mainstream and the middle class going and growing again, we’ve got to get small and family-owned businesses going and growing again."
The former HP exec also came out swinging against likely presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
"There’s a competence issue now. Anyone in 2015 who says you can’t have two email accounts on a single device obviously doesn’t understand technology," she said, referring to Clinton’s recent email scandal.
