With vulnerable Senate incumbents doubling down on Mitch McConnell’s pledge to obstruct the constitutional process, would Florida GOP Senate candidates stand with Washington Republicans and refuse to meet with the President’s Supreme Court nominee if they were in the Senate? They almost all quickly embraced Mitch McConnell’s unprecedented obstruction already, and now Floridians deserve to know where they stand on this latest partisan stance.
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.
“Florida Senate candidates’ support of the Supreme Court obstructionism is spotlighting their commitment to Washington Republicans at the expense of Florida,” said Lauren Passalacqua, DSCC National Press Secretary. “Voters are right to ask if these candidates would meet with the nominee or stand with their party.”
