CONCORD, N.H. — In a swing through New Hampshire, Carly Fiorina (fee-or-EE'-nah) is laying out specifics ideas for how the United States should deal with Russian aggression. They include conducting military exercises in the Baltic states and rebuilding a missile defense system in Poland.
Fiorina, the only female Republican considering a presidential bid, is trying to use her experience as the former leader of an international company to bolster her foreign policy credentials. She ran Hewlett-Packard for nearly six years but was forced out in 2005.
She often says she has met more world leaders than any other potential White House candidate except Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton. Fiorina has never held elected office.
She is putting her chance of running a presidential bid at 98 percent.
