Carly Fiorina, a former Republican candidate who dropped out of the presidential race last month, on Wednesday endorsed Ted Cruz to be the next commander-in-chief.
“The only guy who can beat Donald Trump is Ted Cruz,” she said at a Cruz rally at Miami Dade College in Miami. “It’s time to unite behind Ted Cruz.”
Fiorina, the former chief executive officer of Hewlett-Packard, suspended her campaign after she placed seventh out of eight major candidates at the February 9 New Hampshire primary. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry, who also once was in the presidential race, previously endorsed Cruz for the Republican nomination for president.
Other former GOP contenders who have thrown their support behind candidates include New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham.
