Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told reporters on Wednesday that he will make a “major announcement” in Indiana at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Hoping to keep the media spotlight focused on his longshot campaign to wrest the nomination from Trump after losses in Tuesday night’s primary, Cruz told reporters on Wednesday morning that he hopes Indiana voters will back his “positive, optimistic, forward-looking, conservative campaign.”
The Republican presidential candidate did not elaborate on what his announcement would entail, but it has been reported that Cruz has been vetting vice presidential candidates, most notably Carly Fiorina.
Bill Kristol, the editor of the Weekly Standard (the publication that reported that Cruz was vetting Fiorina) predicted on Tuesday that Cruz would announce his running mate this week.
