Ellspermann endorses Fiorina in presidential race

June 29, 2015

Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina has picked up some support in Indiana as Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann has agreed to serve as co-chair of her campaign in the state.

Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard CEO, is one of more than a dozen candidates seeking the Republican presidential nomination – but she’s far behind in polls. She’ll have to pick up significant support and do well in early primaries to be a contender by the time the Indiana primary rolls around next May.

But Ellspermann, a former business owner, said she believes Fiorina “has the background to grow our economy and lead our country.

“Carly brings a fresh, yet informed perspective to Washington,” Ellspermann said Monday in a written statement. “I believe Carly will place problem-solving before politics, a behavior Americans desire and deserve.”

Suzanne Jaworowski, the communications and government affairs director of Hallador Energy/Sunrise Coal, will serve as the other co-chair of Fiorina’s Indiana effort.
