Ted Cruz can’t win.

But don’t tell him that!
Today Ted Cruz will announce in Indiana that Carly Fiorina will be his running mate.

NPR reported:

Ted Cruz will announce Tuesday he is picking former rival Carly Fiorina as his running mate, NPR’s Sarah McCammon confirms.

The “major announcement” Cruz has teased at 4 p.m. is an unprecedented, last-ditch move designed to shake up the GOP primary race, one in which he badly trails front-runner Donald Trump.

Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive, ran for president herself earlier this year before withdrawing after a disappointing showing in New Hampshire. She peaked early in the contest with a forceful showing in the first GOP debate, and proved herself to be a salient attack dog against Democrat Hillary Clinton. She endorsed Cruz in early March and has been a frequent, energetic surrogate for the Texas senator.

But actually getting the duo’s ticket to victory in the Republican race is an uphill, and some would say improbable, battle. After Trump’s Northeastern sweep on Tuesday night, it’s mathematically impossible for Cruz to net enough delegates to win on the first ballot if Trump doesn’t reach the requisite 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the nomination.
