Sen. Ted Cruz spoke Thursday morning at the Conservative Political Action Conference, discussing the Supreme Court vacancy and other Senate nomination procedures.
"Many times since Jan. 20, I have raised a glass and toasted Harry Reid," Cruz joked. "Because Harry Reid employed the so-called nuclear option, broke the Senate rules to change the Senate rules. Lowered the confirmation from 60 to 51 votes, and it is a direct result of Harry Reid that we now have the most conservative cabinet in decades."
"And so if I could be a little presumptuous, let me on behalf of CPAC, thank Harry Reid. Harry Reid: Thank you for Attorney General Jeff Sessions. And also we should be thanking Harry Reid for EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and very, very soon I look forward to thanking Harry Reid for Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch," he said.
