WASHINGTON ― Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who once joked of murdering Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), suggested Tuesday that President-elect Donald Trump could nominate Cruz to the Supreme Court.
Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, Graham, a strong Trump critic, said one positive in Trump’s election victory was the prospect of conservative Supreme Court appointments.
“I added a name to the list: Senator Cruz. I think he’d get a lot of votes,” Graham said.
Cruz and Graham both unsuccessfully opposed Trump for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. Trump got especially personal with Cruz, branding him “Lyin’ Ted.”
