Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, vocalized support for friend and fellow senator Mike Lee, R-Utah, to be nominated to the Supreme Court on Wednesday, after it was announced Justice Anthony Kennedy would be retiring.

“I think the single best choice that President Trump could make to fill this vacancy is Sen. Mike Lee,” Cruz said during an appearance on Fox News.

“About half of the nominees Republican presidents have put on the court have turned into trainwrecks, have turned into liberal activists,” Cruz continued. “The reason why I think the best choice that President Trump could make is Mike Lee is because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Mike Lee would be faithful to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, that he’s not going to evolve.”

Lee, R-Utah, said in a separate interview Wednesday that he would be open to the nomination if President Trump decided to go that route.
