Fiorina joins board of Perry political group

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Former Hewlett-Packard Co. chief executive Carly Fiorina is joining a nonprofit aimed at helping Gov. Rick Perry gear up for another possible presidential run.

Americans for Economic Freedom announced Wednesday that Fiorina is joining its advisory board. She spent $5.5 million in 2010 unsuccessfully running for U.S. Senate from California.

The group was founded last year using funds left over from a political action committee that raised millions during Perry's failed 2012 presidential bid.

It has produced two national television spots featuring Perry touting leadership by Republican governors around the country.

Americans for Economic Freedom's CEO is Jeff Miller, a former California Republican Party chief financial officer. Its advisory board also includes former U.S. House Speaker and GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich and St. Louis beer baron August Busch III.
