April 27, 2016 by walden9

Ted Cruz to Name Carly Fiorina as His Running Mate | 27 April 2016 | Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, desperate to alter the course of a presidential primary fight in which Donald J. Trump is closing in on victory, will announce Wednesday afternoon that Carly Fiorina will be his running mate if he wins the Republican nomination, two campaign advisers confirmed.
