Good get for the Cruz camp.
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO and GOP candidate Carly Fiorina endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for the Republican presidential nomination Wednesday.
The businesswoman-turned-politician spoke out in support of Cruz during a rally at Miami Dade College in Florida. She revealed that she voted for him last Tuesday in the Virginia primary.
“I walked into the ballot box and I looked at the ballot and I saw my own name on the ballot. It was kind of a thrill,” she told the crowd. “But then I checked the box for Ted Cruz and I’m here to tell you why.”
Fiorina praised Cruz as a leader and reformer who would take on the Washington establishment and characterized the frontrunners for both parties – businessman Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – as beholden to the status quo.
“Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two sides of the same coin,” she said. “They’re not going to reform the system. They are the system.”
