Hillary Clinton may have sat down for her first national television interview Tuesday, but the number pale in comparison to the only other female in the presidential contest thus far.
According to Carly Fiorina’s campaign, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO has sat down for 24 national television interviews since her announcement May 4. The Fiorina camp also tweeted out a fun fact about the number of interviews she has done on a certain network that is not usually kind to Republicans.

Fiorina has done four such interviews on the “Lean Forward” network — two with “Morning Joe,” one with “Mitchell Reports” host Andrea Mitchell, and another with “The Cycle” host Abby Huntsman.
In a statement following the interview, which took place with CNN’s Brianna Keilar, Fiorina took aim at the questions Clinton did not end up facing, adding that the GOP nominee will need to “hold Hillary accountable.”
Stunning…and yet completely unsurprising. Hillary Clinton managed not to answer any substantive questions during that interview. And she wasn’t even asked about her track record as Secretary of State. If we want to win back the White House in 2016, we need a Republican nominee who won’t be afraid to hold Hillary accountable–who will ask her about Benghazi, who will ask her about her conflicts of interest while her family accepted money from countries with business before her, who will ask her why she thought a gimmicky red reset button would dissuade the ambitions of someone like Vladimir Putin.
