This is a great endorsement for Ted Cruz. It will attract some moderate, change-the-system voters who might be put off by the unabashed conservatism of Cruz. And it shows #NeverTrump is beginning to coalesce around Cruz as it becomes obvious that he has the will and the ability to beat Trump and to take the campaign to Hillary in the autumn.

Fiorina was a major player early on, fighting her way on to the debate stage and even winning some verbal spars with Donald Trump. The weird thing, though, is that Fiorina did go full birther on Cruz right before the Iowas Caucuses… though she appears to have had a change of heart.
