Ted Cruz Not Interested in Serving on The Supreme Court

Cruz: I can be more effective in the political spectrum


Ted Cruz is not interested in serving on the Supreme Court.

"That is not a desire of my heart," the Texas senator said in an interview Friday morning on WBAP 820 AM.

"I am committed to the fight of ensuring we have strong principled constitutionalists on the court, but I believe that I can do a great more good fighting across the political spectrum," Cruz, who served as Texas' solicitor general prior to being elected senator, said.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., suggested last month that Cruz could be picked as a replacement to the late Justice Antonin Scalia should Donald Trump become president
