Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is vetting Carly Fiorina as a potential running mate, THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned.
According to a spokeswoman for Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO and one-time presidential candidate is being vetted by Cruz’s campaign.
“Normal stuff,” said Sarah Isgur Flores, who served as deputy campaign manager during Fiorina’s bid, when asked about the process. She added that Fiorina has met with members of the Cruz campaign and has given them financial disclosures and other documentation. Flores added that “no offers” have been made.
On ABC’s This Week Sunday, reporter Jon Karl floated the idea that Cruz could announce a running mate before next week’s critical Indiana primary and suggested Fiorina would be the “one person” to fill that role. (Read more from “You’ll Never Guess Who Cruz Is Trying to Get for VP” HERE)
