September 23, 2019
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, today issued the following statement on the nomination of Lawrence VanDyke to the Ninth Circuit:
"I am very pleased President Trump has nominated Lawrence VanDyke to the Ninth Circuit," Sen. Cruz said. "He has rightfully earned a reputation as a principled constitutionalist who will remain faithful to the law, a welcome change to the Ninth Circuit, which has traditionally sought to undermine the Constitution in its efforts to advance a particular political agenda. By all accounts, Lawrence is a brilliant lawyer, and I look forward to his swift confirmation."
