Crowd Questions Fiorina on Economy, ISIS, & Women's Issues

Hundreds of people showed up for Carly Fiorina's campaign stop in the Quad Cities. This morning, the republican presidential candidate spoke to a crowd of 625 at another New Ideas Forum at St. Ambrose University in Davenport.  
The former CEO of Hewlett-Packard says small businesses are being crushed by appointed officials who govern by regulation.
In her first 100 days as president, Fiorina says she'd first roll back harmful executive orders signed by President Obama. She would also simplify the tax code, and within a month, talk with allies about how to defeat ISIS.
Fiorina says the administration created the problem by refusing to help Arab allies fight the group.

Arab allies asked the US for specific items to help, but no help has been given. Now the king of Jordan is asking China for bombs for his Air Force.

Her schedule today also included talking with members of the North Scott Rotary Club, then an appearance at a town hall meeting at the University of Dubuque. Tomorrow, Fiorina plans to tailgate before the Hawkeye football game at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.
