No change in stance from Senator John Cornyn now that we know the name of President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee.
In a statement, the Senator says “the next Justice could could change the ideological makeup of the court for a generation.” He’s calling again for the Presidential Race to be settled before the Supreme Court vacancy is tackled.
The President Nominated Merrick Garland to the High Court during a Wednesday Morning Press Conference at the White House. Garland is expected to begin meeting individually with Senator Thursday.
“At this critical juncture in our nation’s history, Texans and the American people deserve to have a say in the selection of the next lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court” Cornyn added.
