Republican presidential candidate and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina says she finds it odd it took so long for Ted Cruz to renounce his Canadian citizenship, and listed his renouncement in 2014 as one of the reasons people are so fed up with politicians.

"I just think it's odd. Why would it take you this long to renounce a Canadian citizenship?" Fiorina said last week on the Heidi Harris Show last week. "Why would it take a year before you run for president? I think it's one of the reasons that people get sort of tired of politicians."

The former Fortune Top 20 CEO, Senate candidate in California, and vice chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee also raged against the "professional political class"

"He is a politician, always has been, and 80% of them are tired of the professional political class. I think it's time to take our country back and time to return to citizen government and that is why I'm running for president," Fiorina said.
