Ted Cruz formally named Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential running mate on Wednesday, April 27, 2016. Ted Cruz formally announced that he would be “suspending” his campaign on Monday May 3, 2016 after Donald J. Trump’s landslide Republican Primary victory in Indiana. Why go thru all of the trouble of picking a running mate just to throw in the towel a week later?
Cruz could have done bad all by himself. This tea party darlin’ who was disliked by members of Congress and mostly everyone else in America who wasn’t a member of the team party, pretty much had no shot at winning the Presidency. Why did he have to drag Fiorina, a woman who seems to catch losses at every turn (CEO of HP, Adviser to Sen John McCain’s 2008 Presidential Campaign, 2010 California Senate Campaign, and 2016 Presidential Run) back into the presidential campaign spotlight creating a thus far Republican Presidential Primary win challenged dynamic duo.
Team Lose never had a chance; however the question is whether Cruz ever thought they did?
