Texas Values Action Praises Ted Cruz’s Selection of Carly Fiorina as VP Running Mate
Today, Ted Cruz announced Carly Fiorina will be his Vice-President running mate in the race for President. Carly Fiorina ran for the Republican nomination for President earlier this year and had previously endorsed Ted Cruz after exiting the race. Carly Fiorina, who has born in Austin, Texas but currently resides in Virginia, is known for her strong business experience as the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard and was the first woman to lead a Fortune Top-20 company. Fiorina has made headlines for her strong pro-life stance, including during the second GOP Debate when she addressed the issue of Planned Parenthood stating, “As regards Planned Parenthood, anyone who has watched this [Center for Medical Progress] videotape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, it’s heart beating, it’s legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. This is about the character of our nation, and if we will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this [Planned Parenthood] bill, shame on us.”
Texas Values Action was the first faith-based, statewide organization to endorse Ted Cruz for President, in December 2015.
President and attorney of Texas Values Action Jonathan Saenz stated:
“We have proudly supported Ted Cruz early on in this race and we could not be more thrilled that now Carly Fiorina, who has strong ties to Texas, will be working together with Senator Cruz to restore our nation’s values of faith, family, and freedom. Ted and Carly are exactly the kind of bold leaders that our nation needs at this hour. We are excited about the incredible and unique gifts and talents that Carly Fiorina will bring to this campaign, and this impressive selection shows once again the diversity and fresh vision of the conservative movement. She has clearly articulated her values for human life, the family, and our freedom. She has our prayers and support.”
