LEMOYNE, Pa. -- Carly Fiorina could have voted for herself, but she didn't.

Despite suspending her campaign on February 10, her name was on the ballot in her home state of Virginia for its Republican primary election on March 1. She took a glance at the ballot box for President, and passed over her name.

Instead of voting for herself, she cast her vote for President for Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

"He can win this election," Fiorina said. "He is a fighter. And he is a conservative."

Fiorina visited Central Pennsylvania on Tuesday morning, speaking to dozens of Cruz supporters as his campaign opened a field office along Erford Road in Lemoyne, Cumberland County.

She plans on campaigning with the Texas Senator over the next week, including a rally at the Antique Automobile Club of American Museum in Derry Township on Wednesday at 10 a.m. which Cruz will attend, leading up to Pennsylvania's primary on April 26.

"The people of Pennsylvania have a really important decision Tuesday, and actually, their decision matters hugely," Fiorina said.

Fiorina, a former Chief Executive Officer at computer company Hewlitt-Packard, spent nearly an hour with Cruz supporters at his campaign office, many of them fans of hers as well. She took pictures, signed lawn banners, and urged everyone to vote for Cruz, and not current frontrunner Donald Trump.

"I chose to vote for someone who I know will fight the system," she said of Cruz. "Donald trump won’t fight the system. Donald Trump is the system. He’s made his billions taking advantage of ths system."

However, according to various polls, Trump holds around a 20-point lead over Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich. When asked by FOX43 if she would vote for Trump if her former campaign rival would earn the Republican party's nomination, Fiorina responded, "He does not represent me. He does not represent our party."

When pushed for a "yes" or "no" response, Fiorina repeated her answer.

Cruz's campaign rally on Wednesday in Hershey is his second visit to Central Pennsylvania in three weeks. He spoke at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference in Lemoyne on April 1.
