Carly Fiorina said she's still exploring whether or not she will run for president -- and even Mitt Romney wouldn't stand in her way.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO said she will make a decision on whether or not she wants to run in March or April. Fiorina was co-chair of Mitt Romney's California campaign, but she is vowing no allegiances. Romney told donors in New York Friday that he is considering a 2016 bid.

When asked if Romney would have any bearing on whether or not she decides to run for president, Fiorina responded, "no."

"This isn’t about tearing down other candidates. I won’t do that. This is about me bringing a different perspective, a different voice, a different set of experiences to the table," Fiorina said on the 'Hugh Hewitt Show.' "I’ll run my own race and others will choose to do what they want to do.”

Fiorina has been talking to donors, looking for staff members and meeting with people in key early states.
