BURLINGAME – Picking up on Sen. Ted Cruz’s criticism of environmental protections for fish in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Carly Fiorina, Cruz’s newly-announced running mate, moved Saturday to reinforce his presidential campaign’s appeal to conservatives and farm interests in the Central Valley.

Returning to California, where she lost her bid for U.S. Senate in 2010, Fiorina told delegates at the state Republican Party convention here that protections for the threatened Delta smelt were a product of the “tyranny of the left, the tyranny of environmentalists.”

Her remarks echoed those of Cruz, who told delegates earlier in the day that “three-inch fish go great with cheese and crackers.”
