Flashback Carly Fiorina: 'I Have Great Admiration For Hillary Clinton'

Fiorina: 'She is incredibly intelligent, focused, tough, determined'...

Here is your Flashback of the Day
Roll tape:

"This is why perhaps I have such great admiration and empathy for Hillary Clinton. I have great admiration for her because I know what it takes in some small measure to do what she has done. She is obviously incredibly intelligent, focused, tough, determined, empathetic of all the tens of millions of people that she was trying to represent in her quest to become the first woman president of the United States.”

“And as a woman, I take great pride in the fact that Hillary Clinton ran for president. And I also watched with a lot of empathy as I saw how she was scrutinized, characterized, talked about as a woman

Boehner Unleashed: Ted Cruz is a 'Miserable Son of a Bitch'


Not the first time he's went after Cruz


Bloomberg
The former House speaker says he’d vote for Trump but not Cruz in the general election, and had “never worked with a more miserable son of a b---h in my life.”

Former House Speaker John Boehner said he'd vote for Donald Trump in the general election if he were the Republican nominee, but he would not vote for Ted Cruz, according to the Stanford Daily.
“Lucifer in the flesh,” Boehner called the Texas senator on Wednesday during a talk at the California university, according to the student newspaper. “I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b---h in my life.”
Boehner’s scathing remarks are the latest sign of Cruz’s poor relationships on Capitol Hill, which the candidate has attempted to turn in his favor as he campaigns against what he calls the “Washington cartel.

This isn’t the first time Boehner has unleashed on Cruz: He’s previously called him a “jackass” and a “false prophet.” The tension is a result largely of Cruz’s drive to defund Obamacare in 2013, leading to a government shutdown.

Ted Cruz Has No Mathematical Chance Of Getting To 1,237 On First Ballot…


'Only chance is a contested convention.
Cruz has gone more than 3 weeks without a primary win.
If Trump wins California (he's ahead by 27 in latest Fox Poll), Cruz is likely to be more than 400 delegates behind Trump when we get to the convention in Cleveland.

CBSNY
After getting swept in the five Northeast Republican primaries by Donald Trump, CBS News reports it is now mathematically impossible for the senator to clinch the nomination.

If there is a contested convention, Cruz would have to wait beyond the first ballot for any shot at the Republican nomination.

“We’re ready for Ted Cruz and John Kasich to unite behind Donald Trump,” Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager, told CBSN Live.

“I’m many millions of votes ahead and I’m hundreds of delegates ahead,” Trump told CBS News. “They have no way of getting there. They really should drop off and we unify the party.”

According to CBS News’ latest tally, Trump has 929 of the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination. Cruz is second at 555, while Kasich has 147.

Bernie Sanders to Cut Hundreds of Staff Members


End of the road.

nytimes
Senator Bernie Sanders is planning to lay off “hundreds” of campaign staffers across the country and focus much of his remaining effort on winning California, he said in an interview Wednesday.

The Vermont senator revealed the changes a day after losing four of the five states that voted Tuesday and falling further behind Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Despite the changes, Mr. Sanders said he would remain in the race through the party’s summer convention and stressed that he hoped to bring staff members back on board if his political fortunes improved.

“We want to win as many delegates as we can, so we do not need workers now in states around country,” Mr. Sanders said in the interview. “We don’t need people right now in Connecticut. That election is over. We don’t need them in Maryland. So what we are going to do is allocate our resources to the 14 contests that remain, and that means that we are going to be cutting back on staff.”

Trump: "Waste of time" for Ted Cruz to Pick VP...He 'Has No Path to Victory'


Trump says Cruz is just 'trying to stay relevant' after last night's wipeout


thehill
GOP front-runner Donald Trump called Ted Cruz's anticipated running mate announcement a ruse to stay relevant and a "waste of time."

"Cruz has no path to victory - he is only trying to stay relevant," Trump said in a statement Wednesday. "... Senator Cruz has millions of votes less than me and is being clobbered on the delegate front, this is a pure waste of time."

In the statement, Trump compared Cruz's announcement Wednesday to a pact he made with Ohio Gov. John Kasich earlier this week, in which he said the two would collaborate to stop the businessman from reaching the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination.

"It reminds me very much of the already failed Kasich "collusion" - a desperate attempt to save a failing campaign by an all talk, no action politician," Trump said. "The people of Indiana are very smart - they will see through this just like they saw through the already failed Kasich alliance."

Current AP Delegate count-
Trump now has 987
There are 583 delegates remaining


 

TRUMP: "I Consider Myself The Presumptive Nominee'...Cruz and Kasich Should Get Out of the Race (VIDEO)

Carly Fiorina Is on Ted Cruz Shortlist for VP Pick


Isn't this just a little bit premature?


nbcnews
Ted Cruz's presidential campaign has a short list of potential vice presidential picks that includes former rival Carly Fiorina, campaign aides announced Monday.

Cruz's campaign manager tweeted that they "have narrowed our VP candidates to a short list and are going thru the normal processes associated with picking a running mate." A top aide to Fiorina confirmed to NBC News that the former Hewlett-Packard CEO who endorsed Cruz earlier this year was on the list.

The vice presidential candidate selection process has typically been a secretive one in modern presidential politics. Candidates generally shy away from talking publicly about the vetting until they secure their parties' nominations.

Cruz currently trails frontrunner Donald Trump by almost 300 delegates.

John Kasich's campaign confirmed to NBC News they also are vetting potential vice presidential picks. But chief strategist John Weaver told NBC News, "We are conducting a deliberative process and not in public."
