Cruz, Cotton react to being on Trump’s new list of possible Supreme Court Picks

Senator Ted Cruz has reacted to the news of being included in President Trump’s list of 20 new potential picks for Supreme Court Justices.

Senator Cruz said  “It’s humbling and an immense honor to be considered for the Supreme Court.”

He added “In the Senate, I have been blessed to lead the fight to preserve our constitutional liberties —every day, to defend the rights of 29 million Texans — and I look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come.”

Senator Tom Cotton, who was also included to the list, also issued a statement.

“I’m honored that President Trump asked me to consider serving on the Supreme Court and I’m grateful for his confidence.” Cotton said.

“I will always heed the call of service to our nation. The Supreme Court could use some more justices who understand the difference between applying the law and making the law, which the Court does when it invents a right to an abortion, infringes on religious freedom, and erodes the Second Amendment.”
