Ted Cruz's vice-presidential running mate, Carly Fiorina and his wife, Heidi Cruz rally supporters in Indiana as the state holds its presidential primary. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: Heidi Cruz, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, and the person Cruz picked as his running mate, Carly Fiorina, campaigned at a diner in Indiana on Tuesday (May 3) in a last-minute attempt to sway voters, as the state holds its presidential primary. New York billionaire Donald Trump hopes that Indiana's nominating contest on Tuesday will make him unstoppable in what originally had seemed to many a quixotic quest for the Republican presidential nomination. The famously blunt-spoken real estate mogul holds a double-digit polling lead over Cruz, who has been campaigning in the Midwestern state almost non-stop since mid-April. Cruz has trumpeted Indiana, one of the last big states left in the fight to get onto the November ballot, as his golden moment to force a brokered nomination at the party's July convention. But it appears to be shaping up as his Waterloo. A loss in Indiana would be particularly crushing for Cruz, who has argued that his brand of religious conservatism is a natural draw for heartland Republicans. He won the endorsement of Indiana's conservative Governor Mike Pence. But the waters are looking choppier for Cruz, with the senator losing considerable ground against Trump in opinion polls as voting has neared. Cruz last week also announced his choice for a prospective vice president, the former presidential contender and Hewlett Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina.
