CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina will headline the West Virginia Republican Party’s annual dinner.

The state GOP says Fiorina will speak at its Victory Dinner at the Charleston Marriott Town Center on Thursday evening.

Fiorina dropped out of a crowded Republican presidential primary in February. Fellow GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz named Fiorina his vice-presidential running mate briefly before he exited the race in May.

Fiorina also was the 2010 Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in California, but lost to Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer.

Fiorina was hired as CEO of Hewlett-Packard in 1999 and fired six years later after leading a major merger with Compaq and laying off 30,000 workers.
