Oops! Carly Fiorina Falls Off Stage at Ted Cruz Rally

Carly Fiorina could not have predicted the dangers that lay ahead when she agreed to be Ted Cruz's vice presidential pick.

The former Hewlett Packard CEO took a big tumble on stage at a rally in Indiana Sunday, moments after introducing Cruz and his wife and kids as the next first family.

The Texas senator appeared not to notice Fiorina fall off the stage right before his eyes, while his wife, Heidi Cruz, quickly came to the former GOP hopeful's rescue.

Cruz's spokeswoman Catherine Frazier says Fiorina missed a step but was not injured in the fall, the Associated Press reports.





The stumble comes as Cruz and Fiorina are still trying to find their footing as would-be running mates (not exactly smooth sailing if this GIF is anything go by), and the junior senator is struggling to catch up with GOP front-runner Donald Trump in polls for the Indiana primary on Tuesday.

At least one hoosier is not a fan. At a rally in La Porte, Indiana, Sunday, Cruz was interrupted by a young heckler who screamed, "You suck!"

Cruz sarcastically thanked the heckler, who turned out to be a 12-year-old boy, and then offered a parenting tip: "You know, in my household, when a child behaves they way they get a spanking."
