In Hollis, Fiorina Slams Big Government


Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina criticized big government during a meet-and-greet Friday at Hollis Pharmacy.

Calling out both parties, Fiorina says that while government keeps getting bigger, nothing really changes.  

"And every election cycle, the people of New Hampshire have candidates come through and make promises about what’s going to be different, and the truth is nothing really is," Fiorina said.

Fiorina also called Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton two sides of the same coin.

Friday was the first day of Fiorina's two-day visit to New Hampshire, with appearances scheduled for Saturday in Derry, Raymond, and Bow.
