As she did in Oklahoma City at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference; GOP presidential candidate and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina visited the Western Conservative Summit Saturday growing increasingly enthusiastic support from party participants.

Fiorina spoke about foreign policy, marriage and her plans of the first day in the White House if she is elected President of the United States according to media reports.

“The truth is I know more world leaders on the stage today than anyone else running with the possible exception of Hillary Clinton, only I didn’t do photo ops,” said Fiorina. “I had a private meeting with Vladimir Putin, a private meeting with Bibi Netanyahu a private meeting with the king of Jordan, a private meeting with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, South Africa, China, Brazil,” Breitbart.com reported.

Fiorina has vowed that on her first day as president, she would call Netanyahu to show that the United States is a true ally to Israel.

“The crowd erupted,” reported the Gazette.

Fiorina said she would be tough on Iran – negotiating a new deal that would give access to inspect all nuclear facilities or else she would hype up economic sanctions.

“Ladies and gentlemen we can defeat ISIS our allies will help us but we must lead,” she said.

Fiorina also spoke about the recent Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.

“Principles are most important when they are most difficult to uphold,” she said. “I have been an advocate of civil unions because of benefits. That is very different than the Supreme Court telling us what marriage is. Marriage is an institution grounded in spirituality between a man and woman that can bring forth life.”
