Carly Fiorina is being vetted by Ted Cruz’s campaign as a possible vice presidential pick, Sarah Isgur Flores, a senior strategist to Fiorina, told ABC News.

Flores said no offers have been made at this time.

Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard CEO and Republican presidential candidate, endorsed Cruz shortly after suspending her own bid for the White House earlier this year.

Cruz acknowledged to reporters Monday that his campaign is in the process of vetting a short list of potential vice presidential picks but would not confirm if Fiorina was on that list.

“We have acknowledged some time ago that we have begun a vice presidential search process,” Cruz said. “Any responsible candidate just a couple of months out from the convention would begin that process. We’ve begun examining both a long list and now a shorter list. And that naturally includes a vetting process. At this point, no decisions have been made in terms of who a nominee would be, or what the timing would be of the announcement.”

Colorado GOP deletes #nevertrump tweet, pledges investigation

Moments after announcing that Ted Cruz had swept all 34 delegate slots at the Colorado GOP convention Saturday, the state party tweeted: “We did it. #NeverTrump.”

Within minutes, the tweet had been deleted.

Steve House, the Colorado GOP chairman, insisted his staff had nothing to do with the tweet and is now investigating.

“There’s no way we tweeted that,” House said, although he acknowledged that the state party was responsible for deleting it.

NO PRIMARY, NO CAUCUS: CRUZ GETS ALL COLORADO DELEGATES

Within minutes, the tweet had been deleted.

 Steve House, the Colorado GOP chairman, insisted his staff had nothing to do with the tweet and is now investigating.

 

“There’s no way we tweeted that,” House said, although he acknowledged that the state party was responsible for deleting it.

Even though it only existed in the ether of cyberspace for a few minutes, the optics of such a tweet coming from the neutral arbiter of Saturday’s delegate selection process amidst a hard-fought trench war between Cruz and Donald Trump to secure the Republican presidential nomination rankled a number of Colorado Republicans.

Several local GOP operatives were quick to suggest that the tweet, which was quickly deleted, was the work of the two young Republican operatives at D/CO, a newly formed Republican consulting firm that caters on outreach to Millennials. Caleb Bonham and Kyle Forti, who formed D/CO in December, just took over a number of clients from another local firm, Avinova, which used to assist the Colorado GOP with social media.

China acknowledges a worsening slowdown; targets growth range instead of a number

Every March, China releases a closely watched growth target for the year, a number that looms large for the world’s economists, executives and policymakers. But a growing number of those experts are now calling for China to stop setting that goal, saying the target actually harms the economy and encourages officials to falsify data.

On Saturday, at the start of the National People’s Congress, the government announced a target for 2016 that acknowledges a worsening slowdown. It is a ra ..

he government’s reading on the growth rate last year was 6.9 percent. The new target range means that leaders expect China’s growth could dip this year, which would further depress the global economic outlook.

Following tradition, Prime Minister Li Keqiang declared the new target at the legislature’s opening session. The Chinese government also announced its intent to keep the annual growth rate at a minimum of 6.5 percent through 2020, according to a copy of the 13th Five-Year Plan re ..
