BOOM! Ted Cruz to Name Carly Fiorina as VP Running Mate Today

On the day after Donald Trump predictably won five liberal East Coast states, constitutional conservative Ted Cruz is reportedly going to announce that he is naming former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential running mate.

Cruz announced that he would be making a major announcement at 4:00 PM on Monday in Indiana and many speculated that it would be the endorsement of Republican Governor Mike Pence, however, several news outlets are reporting that the speech will be used to officially announce Fiorina.

I have personally thought Ted Cruz should name Carly Fiorina as his running mate weeks ago, even before the GOP convention in July.

During the crowded primary season, including during the numerous debates, I felt that Fiorina was the best at attacking Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, and effectively takes away Hillary’s “vagina” card.

It’s going to be very difficult for Democrats to label Republicans as waging a supposed “war on women” when the VP running mate is a woman. It will make them sound ridiculous to make that accusation. Democrats sleazily used that strategy, with much success, to defeat Republican Mitt Romney in 2012 (among other reasons).

Days ago, the Cruz campaign admitted that they were in the process of vetting their choice for VP.

Should the power couple make it to the White House, Carly Fiorina would be the first female vice president in the history of the United States.

In 1984, the late Geraldine Ferraro became the first woman in history to be named on the ticket of a major political party, running with Democrat Walter Mondale against Ronald Reagan.

Carly Fiorina is a former senatorial candidate from California, having run against Democrat Barbara Boxer in 2010, and should be an asset for the upcoming California primary on June 7.

Fiorina endorsed Ted Cruz shortly after dropping out of the race and has campaigned with him at various events the past several weeks.
