Rob Portman Stands Firm on SCOTUS Obstruction

Senator Rob Portman will meet with Judge Merrick Garland today, but don’t be fooled by this blatantly political photo op. Portman only agreed to meet with Garland after weeks of scathing editorials, statewide protests imploring Portman to do his job, and numerous polls showing Ohioans want the Senate to fill the Supreme Court vacancy.

And though Portman is meeting with Garland, he hasn’t budged from his staunch political obstruction of the constitutional process. Portman still opposes holding hearings or votes on Judge Garland, and is only meeting with Garland to explain to his face why he’s putting politics above his nomination.

“Don’t be fooled by the dog and pony show Senator Rob Portman is holding today – he is still choosing unprecedented constitutional obstruction over  doing his job,” said Lauren Passalacqua, DSCC National Press Secretary. “Ohioans want Portman to do his job, and in November, voters will turn out to elect a Senator who actually will.”
