Ted Cruz taps Carly Fiorina to serve as running mate

INDIANAPOLIS (AP/WLNS) – Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz has tapped former technology executive Carly Fiorina to run as his vice presidential nominee.

The Texas senator formally unveiled his running mate Wednesday afternoon in Indianapolis.

Cruz is trying to generate momentum for his struggling campaign. Republican front-runner Donald Trump swept primaries in five Northeastern states on Tuesday.

The 61-year-old Fiorina endorsed Cruz earlier in the year after abandoning her own presidential bid. The former chief executive at Hewlett-Packard has never held elected office.
