Never Trumper Carly Fiorina, who believed it was vital for Trump to be impeached, is now saying she will cast her vote for Joe Biden in the general election:
CNN – Former 2016 Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says she’ll support Joe Biden over President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, calling the presumptive Democratic standard-bearer a person of “humility” and “character.”
“I’ve been very clear that I can’t support Donald Trump. And, you know, elections are binary choices. I will say this: I think, I hope, that Biden understands that this moment in history calls for him to be a leader, not a politician,” Fiorina told The Atlantic’s podcast The Ticket in an interview released Thursday.
Pressed whether that meant she would vote for Biden in the general election, Fiorina replied, “Well, it’s not ’til November is it? I’m not voting for Trump … it’s a binary choice. So if faced with a binary choice on a ballot, yes.”
Fiorina, an anti-abortion and former US Senate candidate, acknowledged that there are “plenty of policy differences” she has with Biden, but added that she believes the former vice president could “problem solve” and “find common ground on a bipartisan basis.”
“I am encouraged that Joe Biden is a person of humility and empathy and character. I think he’s demonstrated that through his life,” she said.
Biden is “a person of humility and empathy and character?” This is what festering Trump hatred can do to someone on the right. It’s pretty sad, actually.
Carly also says she’s disappointed in Ted Cruz and his support for Trump:
Asked about Cruz’s embrace of Trump now, Fiorina told The Atlantic she thinks it’s “all about politics” and that she hasn’t spoken to the US senator in a couple of years.
“I don’t excuse it. I don’t. It disappoints me,” she said.
Fiorina’s comments has led one former campaign staffer to admit she regrets ever working for her:
