Perhaps in effort to keep his head above water during what is expected to be another “Trump Tuesday,” Ted Cruz’s campaign manager tweeted Monday that they have “narrowed our VP candidates to a shortlist.” And reportedly, one of those candidates is former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina:

Here’s Guy Benson on why Fiorina would be a good fit for Cruz:
Carly is a natural choice for Cruz on several levels. In fact, the duo already resembles a ticket when they appear together, starting with her surprise endorsement announcement last month. Fiorina exited the race with dignity, having done herself quite a lot of good among rank-and-file Republican voters, among whom she is well-liked. Plus, her skill set as a sharp, ruthless and disciplined attack messenger against both Trump and Hillary Clinton makes her uniquely valuable to Cruz both against his current rival, as well as the one he hopes to face in the fall.
But will news of a Cruz-Fiorina card be enough to stop Trumpmania? We’ll just have to wait and see.
