An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Wait on SCOTUS Nomination

19 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

Please announce that you will wait until after January 20, 2021 to consider a SCOTUS nomination. Within hours of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dared to broach the subject of her replacement, stating, “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate." A reminder: Justice Antonin Scalia died on February 13, 2016. Neil Gorsuch was confirmed April 7, 2017 and was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts on April 10, 2017 — a 422-day vacancy. During a Senate floor speech on March 16, 2016, Senator McConnell said, "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president. The American people may well elect a President who decides to nominate Judge Garland for Senate consideration. The next president may also nominate someone very different. Either way, our view is this: Give the people a voice in the filling of this vacancy." We ask no less than that opportunity to make our voices heard — with only 45 days until the November 3rd election and 123 days until the presidential inauguration — before a Supreme Court nomination is brought before the Senate. Please announce that you will wait until after January 20, 2021 to consider a SCOTUS nomination.
