Stop SCOTUS Obstruction? Not A Chance.

May 04, 2016

With Donald Trump assuring his path to the nomination last night, the possibility of Trump appointing a Supreme Court nominee is terrifyingly real. Will GOP leadership reassess their obstruction to the eminently qualified Merrick Garland? Not a chance!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office confirmed this morning that–despite the risks associated with a Trump nominee–obstruction is still the plan. 

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, appearing on CNN’s New Day, stressed the need to get behind the Republican nominee to assure the appointment of a conservative justice to the court. Reince is ready to put control of the Supreme Court in the hands of the unpredictable and unstable Donald Trump. Sad!

As constituents urge their Senators to Do Your Job, continued obstructionist behavior is dragging down support for vulnerable incumbents Kelly AyottePat ToomeyRon JohnsonRob Portman, and Chuck Grassley. Unfortunately for them, GOP leadership shows no interest in throwing them a life-preserver: obstruction is the plan to the bitter end.
