Senators React to Appearing on Trump’s List of Potential SCOTUS Nominees: Humbling, Immense Honor
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday expressed gratitude for being included on President Trump’s updated list of potential Supreme Court nominees, stating there is “no greater responsibility in public service than to support and defend the Constitution of the United States” and calling Trump’s inclusion of him on the list “humbling and an immense honor.”
President Trump updated his list of potential Supreme Court nominees on Wednesday, which included active conservative politicians including Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Josh Hawley (R-MO), and Ted Cruz (R-TX).
“I am grateful for the president’s confidence in me and for his leadership in nominating principled constitutionalists to the federal bench over the last four years,” Cruz said in a statement following Trump’s announcement.
As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I’ve been proud to help confirm to the bench over 200 of President Trump’s judicial nominees, including two to the Supreme Court. It’s humbling and an immense honor to be considered for the Supreme Court. The High Court plays a unique role in defending our Constitution, and there is no greater responsibility in public service than to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. 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.
