One month ago, Col. West suggested Sen. Ted Cruz and former candidate Carly Fiorina may be emerging as the eventual GOP ticket. Last week, editor and founder of National Review Bill Kristol made a similar suggestion.
Now, Ms. Fiorina herself has just weighed in on the idea, saying “Never say never.”
Via The Hill:
Carly Fiorina isn’t ruling out sharing a presidential ticket with Ted Cruz as his VP pick.
“I learned in life to never say never about all kinds of things,” the former Republican presidential candidate said in an interview on WABC Radio’s “Election Central with Rita Cosby.” “I didn’t think I’d run for president, either, but I did.”Fiorina dropped out of the race after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses and has since been one of Cruz’s strongest surrogates.
She said she’s flattered by talk of her being the Texas senator’s pick for vice president, but she is focusing on making sure he gets the nomination.“What I’m focused on, honestly, in the immediate term is making sure that Ted Cruz, not Donald Trump, is our nominee.”
As Col. West has noted previously, “Now’s not the time for the GOP to run some same as usual ticket.” The GOP must be cognizant of the likely competition in “a Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy will be all about victims — blacks and women.”
Not that the GOP should revert to the Democrat’s game of identity politics, but with a more diverse pool of leaders showing in the primary race for president — and in other leadership positions as well, across the country — we have a fine group to choose from who could also serve to beat the Dems at their own game.
Carly Fiorina being just one example.
