Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday said that if the U.S. Supreme Court consents to hear an appeal in a particular case that pertains to the election in Pennsylvania, he is willing to deliver the oral argument.

"Because of the importance of the legal issues presented, I've publicly urged #SCOTUS to hear the case brought by Congressman Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell & state rep. candidate Wanda Logan challenging the constitutionality of the POTUS election results in PA," Cruz tweeted.

"Petitioners’ legal team has asked me whether I would be willing to argue the case before #SCOTUS, if the Court grants certiorari. I have agreed, and told them that, if the Court takes the appeal, I will stand ready to present the oral argument."

The case includes a challenge to the Keystone State's Act 77, which the filing argues "violates the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (the “Pennsylvania Constitution”) and thereby equally infringes on the powers granted to the Pennsylvania General Assembly under Article I, § 4, and Article II, § 1 of the U.S. Constitution."
