Feb. 19, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) for their clear oped in the Washington Post that it is the American people who should pick the president who will replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court:
“McConnell and Grassley have it exactly right. The American people should have a right to choose the president who will pick the next Supreme Court Justice, deciding the future balance of the nation’s highest court. This is a no-brainer. Every Senator should respect the will of the people at the polls in November as determining who will replace the irreplaceable Antonin Scalia.”
