Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, declared Sunday the presidential election is far from settled and that the legal process should “move forward” — declaring newsrooms in New York City “don’t get to decide” the outcome.
In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Cruz said the conclusion may come “in a matter of weeks.”
“At this point, we should allow the rule of law to operate. We should allow the legal process to move forward and when that process is concluded, which it will be in a matter of weeks, we will know who prevailed in the elections,” he said.
“But the fact that the big news rooms in New York City want Donald Trump to lose, they don't get to decide that,” he said. “That's a question for the voters.”
Cruz pointed to the 2000 stalemate between former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Al Gore that was decided by Supreme Court on Dec. 12, 2000.
“We have a process for ascertaining the truth,” he said. “You can go and present evidence and attest it in a court court of law and then those appeals will go up both through the state and federal appellate system and in this case could very easily end up at the U.S. Supreme Court,” he said.
Noting that during the Bush vs. Gore case, in which Cruz represented Bush, “we had multiple cases throughout the state of Florida. It went twice to the Florida Supreme Court. It went twice to the U.S. Supreme court. It took 36 days to resolve, and we got an answer.”
