Washington, DC (Jan. 5, 2016) – Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina will address and answer questions from members of a coalition of major nationwide business groups in a TeleForum this Thursday, Jan. 7.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have also addressed members of the coalition.
Fiorina will directly address questions in a call that will start at 2:15 p.m. EST and will last approximately 45 minutes. Members of the media are invited to listen in on the session and report on the questions and answers. To participate, press should send an e-mail to Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org with their media outlet clearly identified. A link to listen live online will be sent shortly before the call starts. Those who signed up for the previous calls will automatically be on the list of invited media.
The 2016 election cycle marks the third consecutive presidential campaign cycle that candidates have addressed and responded to questions from ABC members.
The other candidates still invited to speak with the groups are (in alphabetical order):
- Dr. Ben Carson
- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
- Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee
- Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
- Businessman Donald Trump
The candidates qualified for the initial invitation by maintaining at least 4 percent in the Real Clear Politics average of polls during the period starting from the first GOP debate and ending on Labor Day. Should additional candidates average at least 4 percent for a 30-day time period prior to the start of voting, an invitation to participate will be sent to them.
