As she moves toward a likely presidential bid, Republican Carly Fiorina is heading back to New Hampshire for four days.

A former Hewlett-Packard chief executive who has never held political office, Fiorina is using her business background and her gender to stand out in a crowded, otherwise entirely male, Republican primary field.

Fiorina's return to New Hampshire starts Tuesday in Concord for a business-focused meeting with Republican House members. Through Friday, she'll crisscross the state for meet-and-greets with lawmakers and activists, business meetings and a forum on national security issues.

Fiorina was recently in New Hampshire for a gathering of nearly 20 Republican White House hopefuls. She says as the lone woman in the field she could neutralize Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton's ability to make the election about gender.
