Home-State Editorial Boards To GOP Senators: Do Your Job

Mar 21, 2016

The pressure is on for the Senate’s Republican conference. Voters want Senators Rob Portman, Ron Johnson, Kelly Ayotte, Pat Toomey, Roy Blunt, John McCain, Chuck Grassley, Marco Rubio, Richard Burr, and the rest of their GOP colleagues, to do their jobs and end their strict obstructionism on the president’s Supreme Court nominee.

How long will obstructionist Majority Leader Mitch McConnell be able to keep up his partisan posturing as the members of his conference face mounting pressure from their constituents?

Ohio, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Arizona, Iowa, Florida, and North Carolina editorial boards are imploring their senators to act and consider President Obama’s nominee:
