Cruz announces Fiorina as choice for running mate

by
April 28, 2016

Ted Cruz, looking for a shake-up in the 2016 race as Donald Trump moves steadily closer to the Republican nomination, on Wednesday announced former GOP primary rival Carly Fiorina as his choice for running mate should he win the party nod.

The move was immediately dismissed as an act of “desperation” by the Trump team, but Cruz – while acknowledging it is “unusual” to announce a running mate so early – defended the decision. He claimed “nobody is getting to 1,237 delegates,” the number needed to clinch the nomination, and voters should “know what [they] will get.”

“After a great deal of time and thought, after a great deal of consideration and prayer, I have come to the conclusion that if I am nominated to be president of the United States that I will run on a ticket with my vice presidential nominee, Carly Fiorina,” Cruz said.

Cruz, together now with Fiorina, was trying to fight Trump’s narrative that the race is effectively “over,” after the front-runner swept five primary states on Tuesday. But Fiorina, in accepting Cruz’s offer, said she’s ready to “fight.”

    Many believe Cruz will give up now? I stilt look for more underhanded tactics from him and his RNC/GOP PAC, and the media. BUT, above all, from old hands at cheating, Ted Cruz and Fiorina

    There’s something between Carly and Cruz we need to know, maybe something to do with the large sum of money Cruz gave Carly, and the Cruz affairs. Just asking…

  • frofer

    Carly is pro-amnesty and I think a bad choice for VP for someone on the cusp of tanking.

    CRUZ—FIORINA 2016. The ONLY REAL AMERICANS running for President and Vice-President. NOT Disgusting, Despicable, Double-dealing , Donald Trumpf (the would-be Fuhrer) and NOT Corrupt, Contemptuous, Complicit Clinton (who belongs in the BIG HOUSE, not the White House). Maybe con artists and pathological liars can fool “New York Values” leftists and stupid rednecks, but they can’t fool REAL Americans. Trumpf and Hillary can share the same bathroom—how romantic!!!

      I think Cruz – Fiorino is a brilliant strategic political move. At least Americans know Carly from the debates unlike Sarah Palin who nobody really knew in 2008 and the McCain – Palin ticket only had about 5 weeks for Americans to get to know her. Carly appears to be smarter than Palin and has some ideas to make this country better. All Sarah had was some cute sound bites – a “bulldog with lilpstick” comes to mind.

        Maybe so…. But for one…. Palin did not get busted selling electronics to IRAN during the embargo like Fiorino did.
        look it up… Boston Globe.

        Harvey, go back and check Fioinia out, she fired American people in HP and hired illegals, she said that she loves Islam and we should accept it. She was fired from all her jobs for incompetence , what does that tell you, she is for amnesy and open borders, that why he chose her, he is for the same, Carly is a very evil creature, Two peas in one pod, They will ruin America with their NWO. do not vote for Cruz if you love America.

          You made four very negative comments about Carly Fiorina. I would like to know what your sources are and their website names. When I read posts like yours I never know what their motivation is for posting it. Are you a “patriot” who checks out everybody running for higher office, looking for ‘dirt’ because you feel it’s your patriotic duty, are you a die-hard supporter of another candidate(say Trump)looking for anything negative to discredit his closest rival, are you a misogynist who doesn’t like any woman at the highest levels of government(which means you wouldn’t like Hilary, Nancy Pelosi, etc. either)or what. At any rate, please give me your sources – I hope their either 1st hand or from a really trustworthy friend- and I shall check them out , compare them with other sources like the fact-checking websites.

          Check my earlier posting. May be dirty work afoot.

    You can kiss your political careers goodbye Ted and Carly. You started out with a great deal of support and respect. You may be able to salvage those careers but you need to stop this spoiled brat routine and support the people’s choice. Otherwise we will all remember Ted and Carly and the republican establishment orchestrated Hillary into the whitehouse! If you want to know what it will look like just look and see what happened to Rick Santorum he is pretty insignificant because of how long he stayed.

      Something new to read, checkout, then pass on. We’ve got a lot of people to give the heads up warning.

    At this point Cruz naming a vice president is too little, too late. Short of some unexpected event Donald Trump is likely to be the Republican presidential nominee.

    • Eleanor Cummings

      You’re right.Read my earlier posting

  • Rex Sutton

    I think Carly is a good lady but I didn’t vote for her when she was running because at the time I was on the Trump Train and now that she is the Teds girl, I’m going to buy another ticket for the Trump Train all the way to the white house , GO TRUMP,,,Ted did good on picking her ,,, now he will get 100 more votes,,,,Look for Sarah P, I think she’s on the way
