Carly Fiorina threw her support behind Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Wednesday, saying it is time to have a "real constitutional conservative in the White House."

Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO who dropped her own presidential bid in early February, made a surprise appearance at Cruz's rally in Miami Wednesday morning. She applauded him for defying the establishment and fighting for Americans' liberties "over and over again."

"Ted Cruz has stood up and fought for our right to bear arms. He has fought for our religious liberty. He has fought for our sovereignty. And he has won over and over and over," she said to cheers. 

Despite his distaste for the establishment, Cruz is increasingly trying to encourage the establishment wing of his party that he is the best alternative to Donald Trump. Cruz picked up a win in Idaho Tuesday night, while Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) failed to win any states. They are largely banking on winning their delegate-rich home states in upcoming contests. 

Cruz still has not received any endorsements from his fellow senators.
