WASHINGTON (AP) - Former technology executive Carly Fiorina says she is running for president.

The Republican and one-time chief executive at Hewlett-Packard formally launched a 2016 White House bid in a nationally broadcast interview this morning.

Fiorina says she believes Americans are ready for an outsider after years of political gridlock in Washington.

Fiorina appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America."

She is criticizing Hillary Rodham Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic nomination, saying that she still has much to explain concerning the attack in Benghazi and her personal email and server.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson also is set to launch his run today.

Fiorina is likely to be the only prominent woman to seek the GOP nomination, with Carson the only likely African-American.
