Former GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina told the conservative grassroots Friday that after a successful 2016 election season, it’s now important to “bring people along.”

“Let’s face it: hey, a good fight is fun,” Mrs. Fiorina said at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “You guys know: I can land a punch, OK?”

“But…now that we’ve won, it’s important that we bring people along,” she said.

“Unless change is accompanied by growing support, the substantial change is never sustained,” she said.

She gave the example of Obamacare, which was passed with no Republican support, as substantial change that “will not be sustained.”

“But we have to bring people along now so that the changes we all believe in will be sustained,” she said.

Mrs. Fiorina said earlier this month she’s taking a look at running for U.S. Senate in Virginia next year. Sen. Tim Kaine, the 2016 Democratic vice presidential nominee, is up for re-election.

She was also briefly Sen. Ted Cruz’s running mate last year after she dropped out of the 2016 presidential race.
