Former Hewlett-Packard CEO and GOP candidate Carly Fiorina endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for the Republican presidential nomination Wednesday.

The businesswoman-turned-politician spoke out in support of Cruz during a rally at Miami Dade College in Florida. She revealed that she had voted for him last Tuesday in the Virginia primary.

“I walked into the ballot box and I looked at the ballot and I saw my own name on the ballot. It was kind of a thrill,” she told the crowd. “But then I checked the box for Ted Cruz, and I’m here to tell you why.”

Fiorina praised Cruz as a leader and reformer who would take on the Washington establishment, and she characterized the frontrunners in each party — businessman Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — as beholden to the status quo.

    Good for Fiorini. She probably watched the debate last night and saw how off-base Trump was on Cuba, Israel, Social Security and Tariffs to mention a few of his non solutions.

    TED CRUZ 2016—the ONLY TRUE CONSERVATIVE running fort President. Cruz is NOT a phony “Donny-come-lately”, who is only good at hurling obscenities and vulgarities, bullying anyone and everyone in “his way”, trying to hide his taxes, and attempting to seize property from elderly ladies under the guise of “eminent domain” so he can build a parking lot for his limos. No wonder Trump likes the “poorly educated”. They are his “base”.

    The Establishment will – quite by accident – give Cruz the death blow by coming out in full support of him. A Professional Politician is always better and the Establishment still thinks the voters are “in their pocket”. They are dumb on both counts. TRUMP 2016

    What’s new? Carly is still hoping for a VP slot on any ticket. She was an organizer and donor for McCain and again for Romney/Ryan – Carly is an Establishment Player and has a long record of the same.

    I think that she is retaliating at, Donald Trump’s: “Look at that face….”, comment. Sorry Ted, it’s not going to help.
