Carly Fiorina was announced as Ted Cruz’s vice presidential pick this afternoon in Indiana, marking the first ticket formed this election season and stoking controversy that the decision may have been premature.
Fiorina joined The Kelly File tonight for her first primetime interview since the announcement.
“Donald Trump hasn’t won this nomination yet, despite so many people in the media just wishing it would all be over and he would be our nominee,” she told Megyn Kelly.
Fiorina reiterated that she believes this race “is about the soul of our party, and the future of our nation.”
“This isn’t over until someone reaches 1,237. And Donald Trump hasn’t. And no, close doesn’t count. And I believe Ted Cruz will be our nominee.”
“Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are virtually indistinguishable in their positions,” the former GOP presidential candidate added.
“And he cannot be our nominee, and if he were to be our nominee, Hillary Clinton would be our president. And that is a future that I’m not prepared to lay by and allow to have happen.”
