Strict Obstructionist Rob Portman Won't Even Meet With SCOTUS Nominee

Feb 24, 2016

All aboard the strict obstructionism train. Senator Rob Portman is joining his Party of No, saying he will not even meet with President Obama’s pick to fill the Supreme Court vacancy:

Portman (R-Ohio) also said Wednesday he wouldn’t meet with a potential Obama pick.

“Not if we’re not going to move forward,” said Portman, who’s under attack from expected general election opponent Ted Strickland, a former democratic governor.

A majority of ​Ohio voters think the Senate should at least hold hearings for a nominee, “including 58 percent of women and independents,” according to the Huffington Post. Portman’s decision to follow Mitch McConnell, who barely managed to win the approval of 14% of Ohio voters, is extreme as it is dangerous to his re-election campaign.

Portman should stop obstructing justice and do his job.
