Detached from Reality: Cruz names Fiorina as VP running mate even though he’s mathematically out of GOP race

Sen. Ted Cruz is really doing damage to his political career. 
At the age of forty-five, he still has many years in front of him.  But, at this point he’s making a laughing stock of himself putting any thoughts of becoming governor of Texas in the future in serious jeopardy by acting like a sore loser who doesn’t know when to bow out gracefully.  
Politico reports Ted Cruz announced Wednesday that Carly Fiorina will be his vice presidential nominee if he’s the Republican Party’s pick for president.

If nominated, "I will run on a ticket with my vice-presidential nominee, Carly Fiorina," the Texas senator said at an Indiana rally before the crowd began chanting "Carly."

The two appeared together in an hour-long event in Indianapolis, with Cruz alternating between lauding Fiorina and maintaining that he has a path forward in the race despite suffering a series of losses over the last two weeks. Fiorina, who followed Cruz, shared stories about her own background and about Cruz, and even sang to his two young daughters from the stage, as she also railed against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard CEO, has been among Cruz’s most loyal and active surrogates since she ended her own 2016 GOP presidential bid after a poor finish in New Hampshire in February.

"This is a fight worth having," Fiorina said. "This is a fight worth winning. With your help, we will win this fight."

I like Carly Fiorina, but what does she bring to the table for Ted Cruz?  She couldn’t beat Barbara Boxer when she rea for Senate.  She could beat Moonbeam Jerry Brown for governor of California.  Nice lady, but she’s a loser in politics.  How does she help Cruz again?
