Washington, DC –– Today, Arizona Sen. John McCain said that if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, his party “will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that” Clinton would appoint. For nearly a year, Republican senators — including Kelly Ayotte, Pat Toomey, Ron Johnson, Marco Rubio, Rob Portman, and Richard Burr — have shirked their constitutional duty by refusing to consider the president’s Supreme Court nominee, in the hope that Donald Trump would become president and nominate a far-right anti-abortion extremist to the court instead.

Quote from Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“It is absurd and unacceptable that Republican leaders have refused to do their job and even consider President Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court. Now they’re moving the goalposts even further by threatening to continue their obstruction under the next president, unless their candidate, Donald Trump, wins. Do these senators not understand how democracy works? Voters have a right to know if their senators intend to do their jobs, even if they don’t like the outcome of the election.”
