We have just learned that Texas Senator Ted Cruz is vetting former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as his running mate, if he is able to defeat Donald Trump for the GOP nomination.
Ted Cruz has begun vetting Carly Fiorina as a potential pick for vice president, according to a source familiar with the discussions.
Fiorina endorsed Cruz after she dropped out of the Republican nomination fight in February and has since become one of his most loyal and outspoken surrogates.
The news was first reported by the Weekly Standard. Cruz and John Kasich have both said they have begun their vice presidential search, though both trail Donald Trump in the delegate chase.
Cruz aides didn’t respond to requests for comment. But on Twitter, Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe said the search had begun to narrow.
“We have narrowed our VP candidates to a short list and are going thru the normal processes associated with picking a running mate,” he wrote.
