With the announcement that Justice Anthony Kennedy is stepping down from his position on the Supreme Court, Democrats are frantically using any rhetoric possible to throw roadblocks in the way of President Trump, who plans to nominate a Kennedy successor in short order.
For his part, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he expects to hold a vote on Trump’s eventual nominee this fall.
Earlier on Thursday, AR Intel delved into Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) claim that a vote should not take place until after the 2018 midterm elections, giving voters an opportunity to voice their opinions at the ballot box. That argument falls apart, however, when Nelson’s rhetoric from 2016 comes into play.
Similarly, Nelson’s colleague, Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA), argued via tweet that no vote should take place until January and a new Senate is in place.
To find out why Casey’s tweet is just as hypocritical as Nelson’s, sign up for a 7-day free trial of AR Intel by clicking here.
