Beck's son, Chatham Beck, is pictured above wearing in the dark grey shirt directly in front of Fiorina. Beck told The Guardian that he first heard about Fiorina's rally from his son's childcare provider.

"The kids went there to see the plants," Beck told The Guardian. "She ambushed my son's field trip."

“I would not want my four-year-old going to that forum," he added. "He can’t fully comprehend that stuff. He likes dinosaurs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers.”

Fiorina's campaign said in an emailed statement to the newspaper that it was "happy" to have the children attend.

“We were happy that these children chose to come to Carly’s event with their adult supervisor," the statement read, according to the newspaper.
