(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said he’s honored and humbled to be included among President Donald Trump’s potential nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court.
But he said he doesn’t want the job.
Instead, he’s written a book, “One Vote Away,” warning that our basic freedoms are in jeopardy if four liberal justices become five or even six in a Biden administration.
The book’s title refers to the current 5-4 conservative/liberal split on the court:
“If you care about free speech, if you care about religious liberty, if you care about any of our rights, then this book is designed to explain where they stand right now, and just how much jeopardy they’re in,” Cruz told “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.
He noted that on all those issues and more, “there’s a four-justice radical left majority on the court.”
“If Joe Biden wins, the odds are very high, depending on what appointments he gets, that that four votes will become five votes, and the Second Amendment will be erased from the Bill of Rights. That’s the stakes of this election. And it’s true on issue after issue.”
