Texas Senator Ted Cruz taught US Supreme Court Litigation at UT Austin for five years, and is a die-hard originalist. He interprets the constitution literally, especially when it comes to the Second Amendment. When it comes to the part about having to be a natural-born citizen to run for US President, he’s a little more figurative. Up until this election season, the popular understanding of “natural-born citizen” meant “born on US soil.” Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother, so if he were to become the candidate, there’s a chance the opposing party will bring a lawsuit against him. Then again, this election year has proven to be the most absurd ever, so a lawsuit like that would fit the bill.
