Carly Fiorina's introduction of Ted Cruz and his family Sunday in La Porte, Indiana, didn't go exactly as planned, Mashable reports. "Welcome your next First Family—Heidi Cruz, your next First Lady, Caroline and Catherine, and the next President of the United States, Ted Cruz!" says Fiorina, Cruz's running mate, in a video first shared by Info Wars. Yet she quickly tumbles off-screen as the Cruz family emerges from behind a curtain. Heidi reaches out as two guys rush in to help, while Cruz, who glances in Fiorina's direction, returns to shaking hands. The Cruz campaign later said Fiorina was unhurt by the fall, WDTN reports. Cruz named her as his VP pick last weekend; see what political analysts think of the move. (More Election 2016 stories.)
