Concerns Arise Over Ted Cruz’s Polling in Texas Elections

Election in Texas Trump’s worries extend beyond the possible outcomes of the Supreme Court’s assessment of whether the former president has participated in constitutionally permissible insurrection, particularly with regard to his eligibility to appear on ballots in many states in 2024. This legal concern has wider ramifications than just Trump.

In a recent piece, MSNBC opinion writer and editor Hayes Brown addressed how Special Counsel Jack Smith has been deeply connected with former President Donald Trump, illuminating the complexities of the case. In the continuing legal proceedings, Brown emphasized the importance of a recent amicus (friend of the court) brief submitted on behalf of almost 200 Republican members of Congress.

Even if the GOP legislators’ amicus brief is more skillfully written than the majority of Trump’s papers, the analyst notes that their arguments are blatantly self-serving. This is particularly true for the members who, in light of the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision, might likewise be fairly accused of participating in an uprising and, as a result, be legally ineligible to hold public office.

Brown highlights a particular passage in the amicus brief, pointing out that it reflects the legislators’ real and fundamental concerns in the case.

The self-interested lawmakers give up the game with this line: The Colorado Supreme Court would grant itself the authority to determine the qualifications of those who would be elected to the House or Senate, even though it is not directly related to President Trump. Brown draws attention to this telling passage from the amicus brief. Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio, Paul Gosar, and Andy Biggs of Arizona, who were actively engaged in attempts to void the election, may have been concerned, as Brown highlights. Brown makes the argument that their inclusion as signatories on the amicus brief is especially problematic since, in a more equitable society, they would have been expelled for breaching Section 3.

Brown points out that Senator Ted Cruz is one of the Republican senators who will be keenly observing the result of this case.

Brown emphasizes how committed the Republican politicians are to this cause, especially those who are directly aiding Trump’s endeavors. He points out that Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas led the Senate’s initiative to file the amicus brief, while House Majority Leader Steve Scalise of Louisiana spearheaded the effort. Cruz’s participation is surprising given his prominent position among Senate Republicans in contesting electoral votes and his suggestion of a 10-day election commission to look into claims of fraud. Cruz was heard on tape saying that he hoped that Biden’s victory would be overturned, despite not supporting Trump’s wild conspiracy theories.
