Cruz on Voting Rights Act Ruling

Here’s Ted Cruz’s reaction to the Supreme Court ruling on the Voting Rights Act:

Today, the Supreme Court recognized the enormous progress made toward voting equality in the United States since the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965. The Court rightly decided that the statutory standard used decades ago to subject democratically-elected state legislatures to second-guessing by unelected federal bureaucrats no longer survives constitutional scrutiny.

Today’s decision also validates the hard work and personal sacrifice made by my late friend and former Texas solicitor general, Greg Coleman. Greg’s tireless and brilliant advocacy on this issue no doubt paved the way for this result, and I am grateful for his principled legacy.

I am stunned.  Really.  I would never guess he supports the legal reasoning on Scalia, Thomas, Roberts and Alito.
