Cruz urges Trump to nominate successor to Ginsburg next week, warns a split 4-4 Court “cannot decide anything”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is urging President Trump to nominate a successor to Justice Ginsburg next week.

Cruz explained Friday that a Supreme Court that is split 4-4 “cannot decide anything” and under that scenario “I think we risk a constitutional crisis.”

Cruz himself is on the list of names President Trump recently added to the list of potential SCOTUS nominees.

Mark Thiessen wrote  on Twitter “Ted Cruz with an excellent point. If election is litigated can’t risk having just 8 justices and the possibility of a deadlocked court. Could cause a constitutional crisis.”

Cruz wrote on Twitter “This nomination is why @realDonaldTrump was elected. This confirmation is why the voters voted for a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate.”
