Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina jumped into the already crowded race for the 2016 Republican nomination on Monday, casting herself as Hillary Clinton’s critic-in-chief in a video posted online.
While considered a long shot, Fiorina has a distinct advantage: As a woman, she can attack Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in a way her male challengers cannot.
