Conservative U.S. Senators Endorse
Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate www.CarlyForCalifornia.com
Dear Friend, This November, California will have an opportunity to call Barbara Boxer home and send a new conservative leader to the United States Senate. That new leader is Carly Fiorina. We are proud to endorse her as a fellow conservative who has real-world business experience and the guts and moxie to take on Barbara Boxer and win. Carly is not a Washington insider. She is a proven business leader who understands the economy and advocates a strong national defense. And, she is a tough fiscal and social conservative. This is a golden opportunity for the people of the Golden State to come together to elect Carly to represent them in the United States Senate.
Please join us in supporting Carlyâ€™s campaign. Sincerely,
TOM COBURN, M.D. U.S. Senator (R-OK)
JAMES INHOFE U.S. Senator (R-OK) Not Printed or Mailed at Taxpayer Expense
JON KYL U.S. Senator (R-AZ)

Conservative Carly Fiorina
Taxin’ vs. Tom Campbell
proudly signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. As the former CEO of the world’s largest technology company, Hewlett-Packard, Carly knows that higher taxes hurt families, ruin businesses and destroy jobs. As California’s next United States Senator, Carly will: • Work to lower taxes, control the deficit and cut wasteful Washington spending. • Oppose the job-killing Cap and Trade energy tax being led by Barbara Boxer. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers, Boxer’s “Cap and Trade” energy tax would “result in a net loss of 3.2 million jobs by 2030 and shrink average household income by $2,100.” • Fight the government takeover of our nation’s health care system endorsed by Barbara Boxer and President Obama. Carly believes that the key to providing every American family with high-quality affordable health care is to reduce health care costs through competition – not by turning our health care system over to government bureaucrats. • Keep the promises made by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
