Sen. Ted Cruz will announce this afternoon that he is choosing Carly Fiorina and his vice presidential nominee.
The pick has several clear purposes. It will help Cruz appeal to Republican moderates. It will help Cruz steal the women’s vote from Trump, who has struggled at times with female voters. And Cruz hopes it will help him in California, where Fiorina is from and which holds its primary June 7. I will live stream Cruz’s announcement below.
