Senator [score]Ted Cruz[/score] (R-TX) has a complicated relationship with president-elect Donald Trump.
After calling Trump a “pathological liar” on the campaign trail, Senator Cruz later told his Facebook following he was voting for Trump.
Will Cruz’s support be rewarded with a position in the Trump Administration next year?
According to The Hill, President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team is rumored to be considering none other than Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for the position of attorney general.
While many observers, including Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.), had often floated Cruz’s name as a potential Supreme Court pick, there are many who would consider this choice just as good. Furthermore, Cruz has stated multiple times that he does not wish to serve on the Supreme Court.
This comes on the heels of Cruz being seen entering Trump Tower to “offer aid during the transition,” according to one transition aide.

Senator Cruz has a great record of conservative votes in the Senate. If history is any indication, he would be a bold defender of the Constitution and rule of law regardless of what position he serves in the government.
Only time will tell if Cruz makes the cut for a spot in Trump’s inner circle.
