INDIANAPOLIS -- Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz announced Wednesday at a rally in Indianapolis that former candidate Carly Fiorina is his pick for vice president. 

Cruz says he doesn’t think any Republican candidate will get the required delegates, and that mainstream media outlets shouldn’t assume Donald Trump has already won.

After confirming Carly Fiorina as his pick for vice president, if he gets the nomination, Cruz introduced her as a calm, driven leader who values the U.S. Constitution. He also praised the former Hewlett-Packard CEO for her successful career.

“She knows firsthand, that the key to economic growth is not government and more and more government, it is rather less and less government,” Cruz told supporters.

Fiorina arrived on stage and talked about challenging the status quo, something she considers necessary to bringing change in Washington.

“You do more than ruffle feathers. You do more than rock the boat. You make enemies. So I am reassured, and I am proud, of some of the enemies that Ted Cruz has made,” Fiorina said.

In a statement Democratic National Committee CEO Amy Dacey says the announcement is, “a desperate move from a desperate and dying campaign.”
