    Cruz-Fiorina?

    Cruz-Fiorina?

    Is that the ticket?

    Ted Cruz has a major announcement at 4 p.m. today. We will turn a video feed live at that time.

    Reports are emerging that he will announce that Carly Fiorina will be his running mate:

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will announce on Wednesday afternoon that former presidential rival Carly Fiorina has agreed to be his running mate should he win the GOP presidential nomination.

    Sources confirmed to WMUR political director Josh McElveen and political reporter John DiStaso that Fiorina, who has been a supporter of Cruz for several weeks, will be the focus of the announcement that Cruz intends to make in Indiana Wednesday afternoon….

    Should Cruz survive Indiana, California’s primary is key on June 7. Fiorina is viewed as a potential asset to Cruz in California, where she won a U.S. Senate primary in 2010 before losing to Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer in the general election.

    This would be a viable pick for Cruz. Fiorina proved effective at hitting both Trump and Hillary.

    She never was able to turn those performances into electoral gain, but she would help in California.

    We will updates as more in known.

    UPDATES:

    Confirmed.

    Expect Fiorina immediately to start going after Trump. Will Trump take the bait? Will be hard for him to resist more derogatory comments about Fiorina’s face. Poking the bear would be the strategy.

    Carly Fiorinia did better than she was supposed to do in the debates so the pick is understandable. But i don’t really know if she’ll bring in any extra votes. I know that her business legacy isn’t all that great, although personally I think HP had plenty of problems of its own before she showed up.

    Trump just tweeted out video of Carly saying Cruz was a politician who would say anything to get elected.

    She knows a lying scumbag when she sees one I guess.

    She must have some really ugly dirt on Lyin’ Ted for this to have happened… or maybe Cruz is just brain damaged.

    More likely much more behind the scenes going on here than we will know until the history of this election is written. Carly and Ted seem to have had a special relationship for some time now, including when they were supposedly “competing” for the nomination. The Cruz campaign is “slow walking” the FEC inquiry into this unusual behavior.

    Is the second part of the payoff after all the money his PAC gave her?
