Carly Fiorina Files for South Carolina Primary.

“We are the only nation in human history that does not conquer territory, but liberates people,” Carly Fiorina said at a national security forum in South Carolina this week. Continuing her three-day campaign tour across the Palmetto State, presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina made a stop in the midlands to engage with South Carolina voters.Carly Fiorina, rising in the polls for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, registered for the S.C. primary on Wednesday and became the 10th GOP candidate to enter the Feb. 20 race.Later in the day, Fiorina stops by South Carolina’s Republican Party headquarters to officially file her paperwork for the state’s first-in-the-South primary and goes to Rock Hill for a town hall meeting.

During a question-and-answer session with several hundred voters, Fiorina said the federal government should play no role in the minimum wage debate and that people need to be made less reliant on entitlement programs. As the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive rises quickly in the GOP presidential polls, she is surely realizing that her words will now be scrutinized more than ever.

Asked by reporters if Donald Trump’s recent challenges to her had boosted her poll position, Fiorina said only reporters, not voters, had asked her about the GOP front-runner. After the Spanish-American War at the end of the 19th century, the United States made Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines its territories. (It even held onto the Philippines until 1946.) Around that time, the United States also took in American Samoa.

In an e-mail to The Fix, spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said she “disputed the underlying narrative” because outside the continental United States, the nation didn’t conquer land for territory. And to give Fiorina the benefit of the doubt, perhaps in her book, maintaining an occupying force in a country is different from “conquering” it, although experts would consider those largely the same thing. Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman. “I’m a woman always looking at women who are running,” said Atwater, who ran for education superintendent last year. “She’s done great in the debates.” She also teased that Fiorina could make a good running mate for Bush. She said she also believes that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is lying about sending and receiving classified emails while she was secretary of state.
