The Cruz Fiorina ticket
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.It is a good ticket that would give the Democrats a problem if they can get to the convention floor and block Trump from getting 1237 votes. They are both smarter than Trump and Clinton.
Speaking during an afternoon rally in Indianapolis a day after he was swept by front-runner Trump in five primary contests, Cruz announced his decision to cheers and chants of “Carly! Carly!”
“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.
The theoretical pairing represents a diverse ticket – offering the possibility of electing the first Hispanic president and first female vice president.
