Carly Fiorina earned some scorn on Twitter Friday.
The former Hewlett-Packard CEO tweeted that she would support the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Rose Bowl instead of her alma mater Stanford Cardinal.
“Love my alma mater, but rooting for a Hawkeyes win today,” she tweeted.
Love my alma mater, but rooting for a Hawkeyes win today. #RoseBowl

Within moments, Fiorina was blasted for using the Rose Bowl to pander to potential voters in Iowa.

Phony pandering that is not going to yield the desired result. https://t.co/JEAGX7KNwF

Why would you root for the Hawkeyes? This is insulting to voters in Iowa (and everywhere). https://t.co/4UvjIGYSun
