Another former presidential candidate is picking sides, and this time it's not in favor of Donald Trump. Carly Fiorina on Wednesday endorsed Ted Cruz at a rally in Miami, reports Politico. "I checked the box for Ted Cruz," she told his supporters, praising him as a "reformer" and saying he's the only candidate who can beat Trump. She said she's "horrified" by the rise of Trump and likened him to another of her favorite targets, Hillary Clinton. "The truth is that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two sides of the same coin," she said, per the Hill. "They aren't going to reform the system. They are the system." (One columnist thinks "settling" for Cruz as a Trump alternative could doom the GOP.)
