Fiorina Was Asked to Name Woman to Place on $10 Bill. Her Answer Probably Wasn't What Many Expected

Carly Fiorina declined to name a woman she would like to see placed on the $10 bill during Wednesday evening's Republican presidential debate.

"I wouldn't change the $10 bill or the $20 bill. I think honestly it's a gesture. I don't think it helps to change our history," the former Hewlett-Packard CEO said.

"What I would think is that we ought to recognize women aren't a special interest group," she continued. "Woman are the majority of this nation. We are half the potential of this nation. And this nation will be better off when every woman has the opportunity to live the life she chooses."

The remark was in response to a question from a CNN moderator about the recent Treasury Department announcement that a woman would be placed on the $10 bill. Each candidate was asked to provide a suggestion. Fiorina was the only candidate who said she was in favor of leaving both the $10 and $20 bills as they are.
