Dead Silence At Carly’s Q&A
No one wanted to ask Carly Fiorina a question when she opened it up for some back-and-forth.
Fiorina’s star power faded Thursday as fast as it has dimmed nationally since the mini polling boom she earned in the second Republican debate nearly two months ago.
Just a half-hour after a few hundred supporters gathered at the state capitol in Concord to see the the former tech executive sign her New Hampshire Primary candidacy papers, just a few dozen turned out to hear her speak at a restaurant less than a block away.
After a three-minute stump speech, FIorina opened the floor for questions. Just one came, from an eight-year-old girl named Anna whose home-schooling mother brought her to see the would-be president.
A pregnant five-second pause followed while Fiorina searched the small crowd for a second question. None came.
‘Okay – well, eat up!’ she urged. ‘Thanks everybody. Enjoy!’
