The fight over the nomination to replace Justice Scalia is well underway, and will likely intensify through the summer. President Obama, Senate Democrats, and their allies have promised as much.
Here’s where we are: U.S. Senate leadership has promised not to confirm or hold hearings on any nominee until the presidential election has been decided. In spite of this, President Obama named a nominee. Special interest groups are already ratcheting up the pressure on Senators and spending millions of dollars in their efforts to advance President Obama’s nominee and to convince Senate leadership to hold hearings.
The President and his allies promise to increase the pressure, and we believe they will do so.
While a few Senate Republicans have met with the nominee here on Capitol Hill, Senate leadership is holding firm to their promise to let the American people decide through the election this November.
Here’s why the Senate is correct:
The fight will certainly continue here in Washington, but it will also continue across the country on the state and local level. President Obama’s allies and special interest groups are making their voices heard. It is absolutely critical that Americans who support the Senate’s principled stand do so as well.
There are several ways you can do this. During Senate recesses, when your Senators are speaking at events back home, you can attend those events and express your support.
You can express your support by calling your Senators’ offices. And you can express your support on social media, perhaps by commenting or posting on your Senators’ pages. In addition, one of the most effective ways to reach out in your local community is through writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper.
You can also make your voice heard by signing our Petition. We are already approaching 200,000 signatures as momentum builds in our fight to defend the Constitution and give the American people a voice in selecting our next Supreme Court justice.
