Carly Fiorina adds 9 to NH leadership team


Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina announced the addition of nine Granite Staters to her campaign.

The former Hewlett-Packard chief executive said the nine will be on her New Hampshire leadership team.

State Rep. Frank Kotowski, R-Hooksett, cited her business experience as a reason he’s endorsing Fiorina.

“I believe that Carly’s background and real world business experience makes her well-positioned to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016,” Kotowski said in a statement from the campaign. “She is well-equipped to do the job of President and is not afraid to fight for the change we need in Washington.”

The other eight joining Fiorina are:

GOP activist Maureen Sullivan Doyle of Bedford, activist Joe Frazier of Canaan, attorney Bobbie Hantz of Stratham, former state Rep. and curren Auburn selectman James F. Headd, activist and small business owner Jean Esslinger Mathieu of Manchester, state Rep. Peter Spanos of Laconia, and Wally Stickney, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency under former President George H.W. Bush.
