Has Ted Cruz’s running mate and former opponent Carly Fiorina finally come out and endorsed Donald Trump?
According to a tweet from the Washington State Republican Party, she appears to throw her supporter behind Trump as her party’s candidate.

Carly Fiorina was in attendance as the Republican Party’s annual fall dinner in Washington State last week, when she said, “We must have President Trump – we can’t have President Clinton.”
Although not using the word “endorse”, this is the first time she has spoken openly about supporting Republican candidate Donald Trump, also her former opponent.
Fiorina was very focal in her criticism of Trump during the primary elections, especially after she joined Ted Cruz as his running mate, but has been largely silent dropping out of the race. Although her previous running mate, Cruz, had decided to speak at the RNC in July without offering his endorsement to Trump, it seems Fiorina may have learned from his mistake.
Cruz received massive backlash for his failure to throw his support behind Trump during his speech at the RNC, many believing it may have crippled his political future, and has still not offered an endorsement.
Perhaps seeing the backlash against Cruz and still aspiring to have a political future, Carly Fiorina has now made public her support for Donald Trump.
Although I’m not sure if it really makes much difference at this point, but it is always good to see a former “NeverTrumper” come around to Making America Great Again.
