U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) issued the following statement after President Obama announced his nominee to the Supreme Court:
“President Obama has a constitutional right to nominate anyone he wants to the Supreme Court, but only the Senate has the constitutional power to confirm a nominee.
“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has clearly stated that the Senate will not consider anyone until the American people have spoken in this year’s presidential election.”
