Ted Cruz said it would be a mistake for Democrats to filibuster the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
The Texas senator told Tucker Carlson that he believes a number of Democrats will vote for Gorsuch just minutes after President Trump nominated him.
“I think Judge Gorsuch is a home run,” Cruz said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “It would be a mistake for Democrats to filibuster Judge Gorsuch. They will not succeed.”
“This has been, I think, the most transparent process we’ve ever seen for a Supreme Court nominee,” he continued. “A judge’s job is not to pick which litigant you like better or pick which outcome or policy you like. It’s to follow the law. I believe that he will follow in the path of Scalia. What that means is he will maintain a balance of power on the Supreme Court.”
“If Hillary Clinton had been elected, we would have lost much of our fundamental liberty.”
