Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., recommended on Friday that President-elect Trump nominate fellow former GOP presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat.
“I’m here to tell my Democratic colleagues that I voted for Obama’s nominees. I expect them to give Trump’s nominees a fair shake. He won this election. He will pick a conservative. I would put Ted Cruz on that list,” Graham told WYFF-TV on Friday, while at a Veterans Day ceremony at Greenville Memorial Hospital.
Graham added that Trump should scope out the Senate before looking at his own list of 20 potential judges.
“There are some really strong people in there. And there is no stronger constitutional conservative than Ted Cruz,” said Graham.
