INDIANAPOLIS (CBSNewYork/AP) — Despite being mathematically eliminated from clinching the Republican nomination, Sen. Ted Cruz has picked a running mate.
Cruz tapped former technology executive Carly Fiorina to run as his vice presidential nominee.
The Texas senator unveiled his decision Wednesday afternoon in Indianapolis, calling Fiorina an “extraordinary leader.”
“It is unusual to make the announcement as early as we’re doing so now,” Cruz said.
