After Losing 5 States To Trump, Cruz Slated To Add Carly Fiorina To ‘Ticket’


Although Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) continues to trail Republican frontrunner Donald Trump by hundreds of delegates, the senator is reportedly expected to reveal Wednesday that he’s picking former rival Carly Fiorina as his running mate.

Cruz will present Fiorina as a member of his “ticket,” anonymous sources told National Review and Politico. The Associated Press also confirmed the news.

New Hampshire’s WMUR first reported that Cruz intended to name the former Hewlett-Packard CEO as his vice presidential pick.

NBC News also captured footage of Fiorina arriving in Indianapolis ahead of the “major” 4 p.m. announcement.

The news comes after Trump counted victories Tuesday night in five primary states. According to the New York Times, Cruz has secured 546 delegates to Trump’s 953.

Fiorina didn’t shy away from attacking Cruz while vying for the Republican nomination, calling it “odd” that he didn’t renounce his Canadian citizenship until 2014 as questions swirled about Cruz’s eligibility to run for President.
