Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina joined Bill O'Reilly on "The Factor" tonight to react to attacks on her record as CEO of Hewlett-Packard and to weigh in on the 2016 race.

Fiorina pointed out that during her tenure as CEO from 1999 to 2005, she saved 80,000 jobs, went on to grow 150,000 more jobs, tripled the company's rate of innovation to 15 patents a day, quadrupled both the cash flow and grow rate and brought Hewlett-Packard from a Fortune 28 company to a Fortune 11.

She noted that, yes, she had to make tough, controversial calls as a tech executive, but similar calls will have to be made by whoever becomes commander-in-chief.

"I'm running to win this nomination," Fiorina stated. "I believe, as I talk to more and more Americans ... more and more people support me, because they know we need a no-nonsense leader with a track record of actually producing results, solving problems and challenging the status quo."

O'Reilly asked her about Scott Walker's request that other GOP candidates drop out of the 2016 race so that a strong counter to Donald Trump can emerge.

"I intend to beat Donald Trump," Fiorina responded. "I intend to beat him because I think I am the most qualified candidate to win this election and do this job."
