Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz announced that he would be making a really “major” announcement at the Pan Am Pavilion in Indianapolis at 4pm.
His withdrawal from the race is not expected to be on the docket as Cruz has insisted he will remain in the race through the convention.
When questioned if he was going to announce his vice presidential choice, Cruz responded, “If we were making an announcement at 4 p.m., then it wouldn’t make sense to announce it at 10 a.m. And so, the entire purpose of this is you guys should come, and at 4 p.m. you can find out what the major announcement will be.”
Cruz did clarify his qualifications for a potential vice presidential choice. “I have said from the beginning the most important attribute for any running mate is that he or she should be prepared to step in and fulfill the roll as president,” he said. “Be commander in chief, keep this country safe and champion jobs, freedom and security. My number one priority as president is jobs, freedom and security. I think those are the priorities of the people of Indiana and the priorities of this country.”
“So I encourage folks to come join us at 4 p.m. Hope to see all of y’all there.”
