Yesterday was a big day in the Ted Cruz camp. Cruz tapped Carly Fiorina as his Vice Presidential running mate. I believe it is a good, conservative choice. I have not always agreed with Carly, especially on past statements on Islam, but I like her. I’m willing to believe she has evolved on that issue. That’s one issue… Donald Trump evolves on every issue every 30 seconds, so I’m willing to give her room on this. Fiorina is a constitutional conservative and one of the brightest out there. No doubt that she would rip Clinton a new one. Both Carly and Ted are fighters… and we’re not done yet.
Carly was chosen as an attacker to go head to head with Hillary Clinton in November. She would clean the floor with the Hildabeast.
The combination of Cruz and Fiorina is enough to best Clinton in November, the official told TheBlaze — something they don’t believe businessman and front-runner Donald Trump will be able to do.
The timing of the announcement is highly unusual as no presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan in 1976 has named a running mate before officially earning their party’s nomination.
While perhaps a rare move, it sends a “clear signal now that Trump will not be the presumptive nominee,” the senior Cruz campaign official added. Cruz also wanted to be “transparent” with voters and let them see now what a Cruz administration is going to look like, according to the aide.
By adding Fiorina to his ticket this far in advance of the RNC, Cruz is also likely attempting to give delegates and party insiders a fuller picture of how the general election would play out if they chose him as the nominee.
And it won’t go unnoticed that Cruz has chosen a female vice presidential candidate to face Clinton.
