Ted Cruz under consideration for AG post?
President-elect Donald Trump is considering nominating Texas Senator Ted Cruz to serve as U.S. attorney general, according to a person familiar with the matter.Ted Cruz is a brilliant lawyer who would make an outstanding Attorney General. I think he would make an even better Supreme Court Justice. He is one of many names I have heard mentioned for the AG spot. I have seen no indication that he is seeking the job.
Cruz, 45, was at Trump Tower in New York on Tuesday. When approached by reporters on his way out, Cruz said the election was a mandate for change but didn’t say he was under consideration for a job.
Asked for comment, Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said, “Cruz is focused on serving Texans in the Senate. He was there today to offer help in promoting the conservative policies that were campaigned on and that he’s long fought for.”
In a tweet at 9:55 p.m., Trump said, “Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!”
