Two conservative lawmakers plan to fight for term limits in the next Congress, saying the effort will foster accountability and complement President-elect Donald Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp.”
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., announced they will introduce a constitutional amendment that would limit members of the House to three two-year terms and members of the Senate to two six-year terms.
“This is the same amendment that Donald Trump endorsed during his campaign,” DeSantis said in a phone interview Tuesday with The Daily Signal. “It is the same amendment that is supported by groups like U.S. Term Limits Inc.”
Enacting term limits, DeSantis said, will “force new blood into the Congress.”
