SALT LAKE CITY — Some conservatives are pushing for President Donald Trump to fill the pending U.S. Supreme Court vacancy with Sen. Mike Lee, one of seven people the president has reportedly interviewed for the job.
But the Utah Republican isn’t among the president’s top three choices, according to news reports Thursday.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, one of the Lee’s closest colleagues, said Trump has a “sure thing” in Lee.
The article goes on to state the following:
“No other candidate has his combination of record, ability and a sure-fire path to confirmation — and no other candidate would excite conservative voters this November more than someone they know and trust, like Mike Lee,” Cruz wrote for Fox News.
Republicans need a win right now and Lee is “smart politics,” said David Bozell, president of ForAmerica, the largest conservative organization on social media.
Lee is a known conservative commodity who has all the credentials. Bozell said it’s hard to imagine a scenario where GOP senators would vote against one of their own. If they do, he said, they would expose themselves as being the reason for the president and Congress having a sub-par legislative record.
