Carly Fiorina discusses constitution, other issues in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - In front of a standing room only crowd in Myrtle Beach, Republican Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina dove into the issues.

"The potential of too many Americans, the potential of this nation, is being crushed, literally, Fiorina stated boldly.

Hosted by Attorney General Alan Wilson, the discussion started and ended with the constitution, but left plenty of room for everything else in between.

"It's not just about creating more jobs, although that's incredibly important, Fiorina explained. It's about leveling the playing field."

Fiorina touched on the struggling economy, popular social issues like abortion, and even gave a unique stance on climate change.

"A single nation acting alone will make no difference at all, she said.

The candidate also spent time on foreign policy, saying she would pledge support for Israel.

She even talked about a phone call she wants to make to the Supreme Leader of Iran.

"He may not get my phone call, but he will get the message, she said to an excited crowd. The message is new deal."

Fiorina's big message though, was that she believes the government is getting too big.

She promised the crowd change, and to many, that was enough.

"She has strong convictions, said Sharron Lindsey, a North Myrtle Beach resident. She's passionate about wanting to be president, and she was able to articulate all of that."

Fiorina has made two other stops in South Carolina since announcing, but her press secretary says this is the first big event.
