Senator Kelly Ayotte has cast her lot with the Republican Party’s strict Supreme Court vacancy obstructionists, then taken things a step further: Ayotte’s now saying that she would refuse to even sit down and talk with a Supreme Court nominee.
Granite Staters have got to be wondering why Senator Ayotte is unwilling to do her job and carry out her constitutional obligation to consider a nominee and fill the vacancy. 59% believe that the Supreme Court vacancy should be filled this year — rather than be left empty for two consecutive court terms.
And voters definitely won’t be impressed that Senator Ayotte’s following Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has a 14% approval rating in New Hampshire, off an obstructionist cliff.
Senator Kelly Ayotte’s refusal to even sit down and talk with a potential nominee is unconscionable — and it’s a glaring neglect of her senatorial duties.
