From Carly’s Facebook:
I’m proud to announce that I’m joining Ted Cruz’s campaign as his nominee for Vice President. And I wanted to tell you why:
It’s clear the media elites are ready to anoint Donald Trump the Republican nominee before this race is even over. It’s also clear, to you and me, that Donald Trump’s nomination would be a disaster for conservatives.
If Trump is our nominee, conservatives will be forced to choose between two liberals in November: both corrupt, both big government crony capitalists, both part of the system that has gotten us in the mess we’re in.
Worse, if we nominate Donald Trump, we would be guaranteeing four years of Hillary Clinton in the White House.
Over the past five weeks, I’ve traveled the country with Senator Cruz and his wife Heidi. I have come to know him and his family. I know the Ted Cruz the media won’t tell you about–the loving father, the devoted husband, the movie buff. (Did you know he can recite every single line from The Princess Bride?)
Ted Cruz is a constitutional conservative who has made enemies in both parties—because he’s dared to stand up to bipartisan corruption in Washington.
He has fought tirelessly to change the system. And I know, if elected, he will bring back American jobs, protect our constitutional freedoms, and defend our nation.
Our country is being taken away by the elites, the crony capitalists, and the special interests that have captured both parties. They want to take away what we treasure about this nation.
As I said many times before, we need to take our country back in 2016. I wholeheartedly believe Ted Cruz is the man to lead that fight. And I am prepared to give everything I have to ensure we defeat Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The stakes in this fight are higher than ever.
It’s about whether we want our kids to be able to get a good paying job when they get out of school. It’s about whether we will stand up for religious liberty and our second amendment. It’s about whether we want to live in a nation that secures its borders and calls Islamic terrorism by its name.
It’s about the future of the American people, the character of our nation, and the great country we must rebuild together.
This is why we fight. Join us at cruzcarly.com.
