On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) stated that President Donald Trump should nominate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s successor next week, and that the Senate should confirm a successor before the election.
Cruz said, “I believe that the president should, next week, nominate a successor to the court.
And I think it is critical that the Senate takes up and confirms that successor before Election Day.
But this election — this nomination is why Donald Trump was elected.
And I’ll tell you one reason in particular, Sean, why I think it is tremendously important that not only does the nomination happen next week, but that the confirmation happen before Election Day: Because Democrats and Joe Biden have made clear, they intend to challenge this election, they intend to fight the legitimacy of the election.
