Coalition TeleForum Call on Thursday Afternoon

Washington,
DC (January 4, 2016)
– Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina will address and
answer questions from members of a coalition of major nationwide business
groups in a TeleForum this Thursday, January 7.  Fiorina is the fifth leading presidential
candidate to accept the invitation to speak to members of the Associated
Builders and Contractors, the Associated General Contractors, the Business-Industry
Political Action Committee, the National Association of Manufacturers, the National
Federation of Independent Business, and the National Retail Federation.

Fiorina
will directly address questions in a call that will start at 2:15 p.m. EST and will
last approximately 45 minutes. Members of the media are invited to listen in on
the session and report on the questions and answers. To participate, press
should send an e-mail to Andrew.wimer@nfib.org with
their media outlet clearly identified. A link to listen live online will be
sent shortly before the call starts. Those who signed up for the previous calls
will automatically be on the list of invited media.

The
other candidates still invited to speak with the groups are (in alphabetical
order):

  • Dr. Ben Carson
  • Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
  • Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee
  • Senator Bernie Sanders
  • Businessman Donald Trump

The
candidates qualified for the initial invitation by maintaining at least 4
percent in the Real Clear Politics average of polls during the period starting
from the first GOP debate and ending on Labor Day. Should additional candidates
average at least 4 percent for a 30-day time period prior to the start of
voting, an invitation to participate will be sent to them.
