With his campaign for the Republican nomination seemingly at death’s door, Ted Cruz is trying one last time to make a comeback — by naming Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential pick.
As first reported by WMUR’s Josh DiStaso and Josh McElveen and National Review’s Tim Alberta, and since confirmed by multiple other media outlets, Cruz will announce his choice of Fiorina as his running mate at a Wednesday afternoon rally in Indiana.
The announcement comes as Donald Trump’s campaignlooks more dominant than ever, following the billionaire’s sweep of five Northeastern states on Tuesday. Trump now has nearly twice as many delegates as Ted Cruz, and itlooks increasingly likely that he’ll win the delegate majority he needs — or get quite close to it — before the GOP convention.
So it may seem odd that Cruz, who is clearly losing, is announcing his vice presidential pick, which is something usually done by winners. Indeed, there’s little apparent precedent for a presidential candidate to pick a running mate while the primaries are still going on.
I think Ted has gone all mavericky and is throwing a Hail Mary pass. This is not going to help him win anything. It will be interesting to see Trump’s reaction to this. 🙂
Update: This was Palin’s reaction on FB.
It’s smarter to actually put the ball through the HOOP before you claim victory.
Now isn’t she a nasty little b*tch?
