Many Constitutional conservatives were crushed that Ted Cruz did not have the chance to square off against Hillary Clinton for president. Many wondered if there was still an appropriate position left for Cruz, perhaps a Supreme Court seat. When Cruz was asked about it he said, “That is not a desire of my heart.”

From Daily Wire:

“Frankly, all the times I’ve interviewed you, I’ve never asked if you have any aspirations or felt called if asked to serve on the Supreme Court,” said WBAP-AM host Chris Salcedo in an interview with Cruz Friday. “I mean, I know you have the sharp intelligence to handle the job. But is it even something you even consider?”

“You know, Chris, I’ll tell you. That is not a desire of my heart,” answered Cruz, adding, “I have had several opportunities in the past to go to the bench, and I certainly deeply respect the job the justices do. But I think our country is in crisis. And I think we need a strong conservative president who will appoint not just one, but two, three, four, five Supreme Court justices who are principled constitutionalists.”

Cruz went on to argue that he could be far more impactful as a president than as a justice, citing the need to repeal Obamacare, defend religious freedom, and protect our allies, particularly Israel.

“I believe that I can do a great deal more good fighting across the political spectrum because we also need leadership to repeal every word of Obamacare, to pass a flat-tax and abolish the IRS, to protect religious liberty and stop the federal government form violating our First Amendment rights and to stand with our friends and allies, especially the nation of Israel,” said Cruz.
