Fiorina campaign launches 21st century voter contact

Washington (CNN) – Carly Fiorina’s Senate campaign has unveiled a new mobile twist to phone banking that allows volunteers to make voter contacts on-the-go.

The program works by sending volunteers a text message with the name and phone number of a person the campaign wants to reach. The volunteer then makes contact and asks if the voter plans to support Fiorina as the Republican nominee for Senate. The response is then relayed back to the campaign and is logged into the campaign voter file, similar to how a traditional phone bank works. But the transfer of the information is done via SMS texting.

“This technology brings traditional phone banking right to the palm of your hand,” Fiorina spokeswoman Julie Soderlund told CNN in an e-mail.

The program also allows people to opt in to receive periodic campaign updates as text messages. While the technology has been created, the campaign will put the mobile phone banking into use in the coming weeks as the California primary is June 8.

    What a pig! He should be thrown out of office and apologize to everyone especially his ex and family. This tells alot about the country when we let these kind of betrayals go unpunished and keep a slob like this in office. I hope he gets what he's asking for and lives miserably every after.

    Carly, you are worthless.
    You failed as CEO of HP.
    You lied to your customers of HP-
    You outsourced thousands of jobs.
    You got thousands of Indians and Pakistani into this country for cheap labor with H1B visas that you would get a bigger bonus.
    You failed as economic advisor to McCain.

    Why don't you go to Pakistan? Thats where you fit in.

    We do not want you.

    This woman is a fraud! Her plan is to outsource as much as she can to be sure there is no middle class left when she id done, just like she did to HP before being fired with a nice golden parachute.
