With vulnerable Senate incumbents doubling down on Mitch McConnell’s pledge to obstruct the constitutional process, would Congressman Joe Heck stand with Washington Republicans and refuse to meet with the President’s Supreme Court nominee if he was in the Senate? He still hasn’t offered a clear answer beyond his ridiculous Washington-speak on Mitch McConnell’s unprecedented obstruction, and Nevadans deserve answers.
A new poll from the Pew Research Center found that 56 percent of Americans think that the Senate should hold hearings and vote on the Supreme Court nominee. This position is also held by a majority of Independents: 56 percent.
“Congressman Joe Heck’s refusal to give a clear answer on where he stands on this unprecedented obstruction is shameful,” said Lauren Passalacqua, DSCC National Press Secretary. “Congressman Heck has voted with his party 90% of the time, and voters have the right to know whether he will stand with his party or with the Constitution on this crucial issue.”
