Yesterday, pro-life GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz announced pro-life former candidate Carly Fiorina as his vice-presidential running mate. The pro-life pair would become the nominee for the Republican party only if Cruz can beat Donald Trump and John Kasich.

During the rally yesterday, Fiorina said Cruz is the right man to lead the fight to “take our country back.” Here’s a video and transcript of her remarks:

They want to take away, they are taking away. Not only what we treasure about this nation, but what has made this nation great. What has made this nation a place of possibility for so many people. My fellow Americans, people of Indiana, it is time. We must take our country back. (Cheers and applause) This, this, is the fight of our time.

And I believe Ted Cruz is the man to lead that fight. And I am prepared to stand by his side and give this everything I have, to restore the soul of our party, to defeat Donald Trump, to defeat Hillary Clinton, and to take our country back. (Cheers and applause) And so, my fellow citizens, you must stand with us. You must fight with us.

We must restore the potential of this nation. We must restore what has made this nation great for so many people regardless of their circumstances. So the possibilities of this nation, the opportunity of this nation, the rights and liberties of this nation can extend to every American. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the fight of our times. Ted Cruz is the man to lead that fight. I will stand proudly by his side. I want you to stand with us as we fight. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome back the next president of the United States, Ted Cruz!
