After blasting President Obama on Thursday for deciding not to attend Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral, Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign had originally said that Cruz would also be skipping it. But late Thursday night, his campaign announced that Cruz would be changing his schedule to attend Scalia’s funeral.
Earlier in the day, Cruz slammed Mr. Obama for being “unwilling” to attend Scalia’s funeral, but still planning to travel to Cuba.
The White House announced Wednesday that the president would skip the funeral, and instead, he and first lady Michelle Obama would pay their respects when Scalia lies in repose at the Supreme Court on Friday. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden are slated to go to the funeral instead.
