Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says he’s ready to go before the Supreme Court and argue a case challenging the constitutionality of the presidential election results in Pennsylvania.

“I have told the petitioners I will stand ready to present the oral argument,” Cruz tweeted Monday.



Cruz told Fox News, “As I said last week, the bitter division and acrimony we see across the Nation needs resolution. I believe the Supreme Court has a responsibility to the American people to ensure, within it’s powers, that we are following the law and the Constitution.”

Pennsylvania’s election has been challenged by lawmakers who claim that Pennsylvania expanded voting by mail improperly, with the measure voted on in the state legislature, instead of submitting the change through a constitutional amendment.

Cruz told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, “We’re seeing across the country, lawsuits that are challenging voter fraud, that are challenging irregularities in the election, and in Pennsylvania this appeal to the Supreme Court raises very serious issues.”

Cruz has previously argued cases before the Supreme Court in the past.

There is no guarantee that the Supreme Court will take on the Pennsylvania case.
