I think it's a correct assumption that he's trying to deflect his recent losses. Announcing a VP pick, don't think so. Most candidates don't do that until they clinch the nomination. He's probably up to some dirty trick as his usual.

Its certainly not a drop-out announcement.... He wants a contested convention as much as anyone and is going all in in Indiana

He's either crazy enough to pick a VP or has secured some kind of 'high profile' endorsement he wants to trot out on television

He wants some media attention since Trump gets the most.

Because there was a statement put out saying he would not be there in response to those rumors.

Actually, I'm going to try to be serious here. He might try to announce even more conservatism coming from him in an attempt to make Trump look like "not a true conservative". In doing this, he'll probably try to garner more Republican votes and divide the general assembly even further. He'll probably also announce a full alliance with Kasich in order to try to still get a contested convention (not even trying to win at this point). The problem is that Trump is clearly a moderate and it will just make Cruz look even more like an ultra conservative. I think the party has already taken sides at this point and any attempt to demean Trump will be futile. Kasich and Cruz are just wasting their money at this point.

He's going to announce Fiorina as his running mate then.

In addition to all this, Kasich isn't even playing ball with Cruz's plan to stay out of Indiana. He was literally there chatting with people as recently as last night, taking pics with state representatives, and was quoted saying that, "If people in Indiana still want to vote for me, they should."

So, even this united front between Cruz and Kasich isn't concrete.

He is picking Fiorina as his VP...which is just absurd considering that he is mathematically eliminated. I think this race is pretty much over

Called it ;)

Ted Cruz will lose tremendously in Indiana.

Fiorina is the most disgusting woman to ever enter Republican politics. Cruz may be the most disgusting man.

He picked her to make her his scapegoat.

You've got to think about what he knows, now. Ted knows he's lost, so now his objective is to preserve his political career.

So, he picks that cunt, loses everything in a row, and then walks away and blames her.

This is classic psychopath behavior, and Cruz is indeed a psychopath. Fiorina might be too... but she isn't as smart as he is.

If I was Trump, and Ted Cruz came to me asking for a handout, I'd secretly record the conversation and then release it to the world. But during the conversation, I'd tell him to fvck off.

Only Ted Cruz would pick a woman who singlehandedly killed two companies to boost his credibility on jobs and the economy.

Pause for boo's.
Crowd boo's.
Boo's stop.
Carries on with the rest of his speech right as the boo's stop.

He knew exactly when the crowd would boo and would stop booing. Straight fcking rehearsed.

He's not even trying to make this "New Announcement" look natural.

I don't want to give Cruz too much credit (strategically he is not that great), but it could actually be really smart with the California primary coming up - she was the consensus choice in 2010 there a three-way primary (56%) and is fairly popular and well connected. It's also a solid doubling-down on the whole outsider thing.

It is similar to Reagan's ploy in '76, except that time he thought he needed a moderate to draw the more moderate wing towards him. This is a doubling-down for Cruz to win western conservatives.
