Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) faces a tough decision on whether to follow through on his pledge to block any legislation he deemed nonessential in the lame-duck session.
With his colleagues scrambling to finish a $1 trillion government-funding measure and get out of town, Cruz is a wild card.
He and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) took a hard line in September, warning Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that they would object to passing non-emergency bills in December.
“If you do call a lame-duck session, we the undersigned will object to any unanimous consent request to in any way advance any non-emergency, substantial, and controversial legislation, nominations or treaties,” they wrote.
