Carly Fiorina "Very Satisfied" With GOP Debate Performance

Sep 17, 2015

Carly Fiorina had a strong showing at the Republican debate on CNN Wednesday night, and she knows it.

“I was very satisfied,” Fiorina told ABC's Good Morning America of her performance. “When I went into the debate, almost half the audience didn’t know my name, and I introduced myself successfully.”

During the debate, Fiorina laid out detailed foreign policy visions, made an impassioned speech against Planned Parenthood and sparred with Donald Trump over comments he had made about her looks. The former Hewlett-Packard CEO had worked her way into the primetime slot after surging in the polls following her first performance in the Fox undercard debate in August.
