The Maine Republican Party has announced that former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina will speak at the party’s state convention Saturday on behalf of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett Packard, suspended her presidential campaign in February of this year and has since endorsed Cruz.

This marks Fiorina’s second visit to Maine. She spoke at a luncheon hosted by the conservative Maine Heritage Policy Center in South Portland in September 2015.

The Republican convention is being held Friday and Saturday at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. Last week, the party announced that another former presidential candidate, surgeon Ben Carson, will speak at a convention banquet Friday night. Carson supports Donald Trump for president.

Cruz will be awarded a majority of the state’s delegates after winning 46 percent of votes during Maine’s presidential caucuses.
