Carly Florin suggested Republicans should quickly replace their congressional leaders if they don't start producing results. The GOP presidential contender proposed a party revolt against House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in an interview with Breitbart News.

"I think leadership's job is to produce results, and when leaders don't produce results, they need to step aside," Fiorina said. "So, I think, I share the frustration of so many people who worked hard to create these majorities."

Fiorina, who was ousted as CEO of Hewlett-Packard after she failed to produce expected results, cited "three key things" that Republican leaders need to do quickly or else "step aside."

"Number one, they need to pass a border security bill. For heaven's sake, our border has been insecure for 25 years. There are loads of conservative proposals for how to secure the border. This isn't rocket science. Pass a border security bill. We have the majority to do it. Second, pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The majority of Americans agree abortion for any reason after 20 weeks is wrong. Defund Planned Parenthood. We have the majorities to do that. And finally, I'd like to see them pass the REINS Act, which has been languishing in Congress and says Congress has to have a vote on some of the regulations that keep rolling out of the White House that are crushing economic opportunity. Congress hasn't done anything about it."
