This person would be an interesting vice-president.

As the Republican primary drags on, each candidate has started to consider potential picks for vice-president as a way of showing the American people that he is serious.

The Weekly Standard reported that the Cruz campaign is reportedly vetting former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina to be Sen. [score]Ted Cruz[/score]’s running mate.

After her presidential bid ended, Fiorina endorsed Cruz and has since been one of his most vocal supporters, traveling all around the country campaigning for him.

Fiorina was especially active in Wisconsin before that state’s primary, and was viewed by some as helping Cruz win that primary by such a large margin.

The Cruz campaign refused to comment on the potential of Fiorina being Cruz’s vice-presidential pick other than to release a standard statement about the choosing of vice-presidential candidates.

“We’ve already announced publicly that we’re vetting prospecting VP nominees, but no selection has been made yet. When that decision has been made, we will share it,” said Cruz spokeswoman Alice Stewart.

An aide did confirm to Sean Hannity, however, that Fiorina was on the short list.

The idea has been floated in political commentary circles that Cruz could announce his vice-presidential pick before the crucial primary in Indiana as a way of shaking up the race in his favor.

During the primary, Fiorina was a very strong candidate who just couldn’t catch fire with the voters. She would be a solid pick for Cruz, and could potentially be used to counter the woman card that Hillary Clinton is certain to play in the general election.
