So now there are two Federalist Society Senators.

With Ted Cruz locking up the nomination (and the inevitable victory in November), he joins Mike Lee as the second U.S. Senator who is a member of the Federalist Society.

Article I? Check. Article III? Check. Article II? Not there.

    I think there are many more, actually. For example, Senator Hatch is a long-time co-chair of the Board of Visitors, and thus presumably a member.

      Thanks Orin, you are correct. I had in mind practicing lawyers who came of age with the federalist society, like Cruz and Lee.
