For all the harsh rhetoric Carly Fiorina directs at Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state appears to hold no grudges against the Republican presidential candidate’s husband.

At a polling station Tuesday morning in Derry, New Hampshire, Clinton ran into the former Hewlett-Packard executive’s husband, Frank Fiorina.

The two chatted briefly and even snapped a photo in between opposing “Carly’’ and “Hillary’’ signs, according to a pool report.

“Do you remember me?’’ asked Fiorina, wearing a “Carly’’ pin outside Gilbert H. Hood Middle School.

“I sure do,’’ Clinton replied, shaking his hand. “Good for you for being out here.’’


Fiorina said he heard Bill Clinton was out campaigning in the state as well, before adding he should’ve worn better shoes for the cold weather. They both marveled at the state’s primary process.

“It is such an amazing, wonderful part of democracy,’’ Clinton said.

“It is, look at these folks all out here, it’s amazing,’’ Fiorina added.

Fiorina’s tone towards Clinton was notably more toned down than his wife’s has been in her pursuit of the Republican nomination. She has said Clinton “will do anything to gain and hang on to power,’’ compared her to Mexican drug cartel lord Joaquin “El Chapo’’ Guzman, and said the former secretary of state was more qualified for the “big house’’ than the White House.

But Frank Fiorina and Clinton kept things cordial Tuesday, with Clinton even offering to take a picture with him.

“Give my best to Carly,’’ she added, before continuing on to the campaign’s next stop.
