On ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Cruz said to ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos that the USA simply can’t afford to have a short-handed high court with a possible contested presidential election just 44 days away.
Cruz started by saying he and his wife’s prayers are with the Ginsburg family, “who are grieving the loss of someone who led an extraordinary life.”
“She was a trailblazing advocate, one of the finest Supreme Court litigators to have ever lived,” said Cruz, adding that as a lawyer he argued cases before Ginsburg nine times. “She was a brilliant justice. Her questions were always incisive. She was a careful lawyer.”
Turning to the issue of replacing Ginsburg, Cruz, when prodded, said, “I believe the right thing to do is for the Senate to take up this nomination and to confirm the nominee before Election Day.”
When pressed on whether the Republicans have the votes to push Trump’s nominee through, Cruz said “I don’t know the answer to that,” Cruz said. “I believe we will.”
