Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) is the best choice President Trump could make to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): I think the single best choice that President Donald Trump could make to fill this vacancy is Senator Mike Lee. I think he would be extraordinary. You know if you look back at republican nominations to the court, democrats have batted almost 1,000. Just about every nominee they put up there has voted they way they wanted on just about every single issue. Republicans at best bat 500. About half of the nominees republican presidents have put on the court have turned into train wrecks, have turned into liberal activists. The reason why I think the best choice that President Trump could make is Mike Lee is because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Mike Lee would be faithful to the Constitution and Bill of Rights and that he’s not going to evolve and turn into a David Souter. He’s going to honor his commitment.
