With other vulnerable incumbents doubling down on Mitch McConnell’s pledge to obstruct the constitutional process, will Senator Richard Burr stand with Washington Republicans and refuse to meet with the President’s Supreme Court nominee? He quickly embraced Mitch McConnell’s unprecedented obstruction already, and now North Carolinians deserve to know where he stands 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.
“Richard Burr’s Supreme Court obstructionism is spotlighting his commitment to Washington Republicans at the expense of North Carolina,” said Lauren Passalacqua, DSCC National Press Secretary. “His record of voting with his party 95 percent of the time has already hurt him in North Carolina, and now voters are right to ask if their senator will meet with the nominee or stand with his party.”
