STATEMENT ON SUPREME COURT CONFIRMATION PROCESSS

Chicago, IL -- Yesterday, President Obama announced his nominee for the Supreme Court. In response, George Goehl, Executive Director of National People’s Action, issued the following statement:

"President Obama did his constitutional duty by selecting a nominee to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court.  It is now time for the Senate to do their duty and give the nominee a fair and thorough hearing.  Anything less would be a dereliction of their sworn duty."
