Kansas Rep. Lynn Jenkins endorses Carly Fiorina

Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins on Sunday endorsed Carly Fiorina for president.

Jenkins, the fifth-highest ranking Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives. will serve as Fiorina’s co-chair in Kansas.

“As a CPA who practiced public accounting for nearly 20 years before coming to Congress, I recognize when a system is as badly broken as Washington is, it is best to look to the outside for a new direction,” Jenkins said in a statement.

“Carly Fiorina is exactly the strong, steady, no nonsense businesswoman that our nation so desperately needs. Starting as a secretary and fighting her way to the very top, it is clear this is not a woman who was handed things. She had to fight for every bit of success she has achieved.

“She is proof the American dream still exists. When I think of the critical challenges our nation faces, whether its job creation domestically or thuggish dictators and terror networks internationally, I can think of no one better to face them down than Carly Fiorina.”
