Carly Fiorina Joins the Cruz Campaign as his Vice Presidential Nominee
A Letter From Vice Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina:
Today, I am proud to announce that I have accepted Ted Cruz's offer to be his Vice Presidential nominee.
As a loyal supporter, I want to tell you why:
It's clear the media elites are ready to anoint Donald Trump as the Republican nominee before this race is even over. It's also clear, that Donald Trump's nomination would be a disaster for America.
If Trump is our nominee, conservatives will be forced to choose between two liberals in November: both corrupt, both big government crony capitalists, and both part of the system that has gotten us in the mess we're in.
Worse, if we nominate Donald Trump, we would be guaranteeing four years of Hillary Clinton in the White House.
Over the past weeks, I've traveled the country with Senator Cruz and his wife Heidi. I have come to know him and his family.
I know the Ted Cruz the media won't tell you about – the loving father, the devoted husband, the movie buff. (Did you know he can recite every single line from The Princess Bride?)
Ted Cruz is a constitutional conservative who has made enemies in both parties – because he's dared to stand up to bipartisan corruption in Washington.
He has fought tirelessly to change the system. And I know, if elected, he will bring back American jobs, protect our constitutional freedoms, and defend our nation.
Our country is being taken away by the elites, the crony capitalists, and the special interests that have captured both parties. They want to take away what we treasure about this nation.
As you have heard me say before, we need to take our country back. I believe Ted Cruz is the man to lead that fight now. And I am prepared to give everything I have to ensure we defeat Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Make no mistake: this is a fight now. Ted and I can't do this without your help.
But this fight is about all of us.
It's about whether we want our kids to be able to get a good paying job when they get out of school. It's about whether we want to turn our backs on religious liberty and our second amendment. It's about whether we want to live in a nation that secures its borders and calls Islamic terrorism by its name.
It's about the future of the American people, the character of our nation, and the great country we must rebuild together.
This is why we fight.
