82 Organizations Call for GOP Judiciary Committee Members to Uphold Constitution

by Maureen McCarty February 28, 2016


HRC is proud to join a broad coalition of 82 organizations in condemning Republican members of Senate Judiciary Committee for their unprecedented obstruction of the U.S. Supreme Court nomination process.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley and 10 other Republican committee members - Sen. Orrin Hatch (UT), Sen. Jeff Sessions (AL), Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC), Sen John Cornyn (TX), Sen Michael Lee (UT), Sen Ted Cruz (TX), Sen Jeff Flake (AZ), Sen David Vitter (LA), Sen David Perdue (GA) and Sen Thom Tillis (NC) --  refuse to hold a hearing on or even meet with any potential Supreme Court nomination.

HRC is calling on these 11 Senators to uphold their Constitutional obligation to evaluate a nominee’s qualifications.
