At this exact point in history can we afford to lose Cruz, Cotton, or Hawley out of the senate?

@mystery-ak

I know next to nothing or nothing about the rest of them,but Cruz is scary-smart,and might have trouble winning his seat this election.

Don't know how he would lean politically if on the SC,though.

Cruz' Constitutional knowledge impressed me long before he ran for POTUS. I think he would do very well in the SC, but would even more prefer him to be some place he could stop crap before it became law and people had to go through years of crap to get it overturned.

Think maybe Mr Trump is trolling the Dems by releasing this list?
Making them go berserk over the suggested nominees?
And getting them to do his vetting for him?
Getting them to spend resources on investigating these possible nominees?
Only to nominate someone else not on the list?

Also, Ted Cruz won by a much smaller margin in 2018 than in 2012
largely because the Dems used their "shiny new object" strategy
in nominating Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke in 2018.
After all, the "shiny new object" strategy
did a great job of energizing the Dems' base
in 1992 and 2008.
If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion,
mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.
