Out of more than 13 Republican candidates vying for the nomination to run for president in 2016, only one is a woman, Carly Fiorina. At a recent rally in Las Vegas, the 200+ in attendance for the yearly Mavericks PAC conference greeted Fiorina warmly. They were thrilled to encounter the one female GOP contender for president.

“Go ahead, admit it,” she announced to the young conservative voters hall as the cheering died down. “You want to see me debate Hillary Clinton in the general election.”

This may be true, but we might not be able to see her first debate her fellow Republicans in the upcoming primary debates scheduled for August 6.

Fox News is hosting a debate, but they are only allowing the first ten Republican candidates to take part. Currently Fiorina is ranked only 14 out of a total of 15 candidates.

“Everybody’s sort of fixated on this first debate and I’ve been honest, I’d love to be on that first debate stage and I’m working really hard to get there. I think I will be,” Fiorina remarked after her time on stage. “If I’m not, it’s not the end of the world; it’s not the end of the campaign.”
