Pennsylvania Republican Congressmen urge Senator Casey to support Senate vote on President Trump’s Supreme Court pick
Washington – Today, eight Pennsylvania Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives sent a letter to Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), urging him to follow the Senate’s historical precedent and stand by his previous emphatic position of supporting a Senate vote on a Supreme Court nominee during a presidential election year.
Congressmen Fred Keller (PA-12), Glenn “GT” Thompson (PA-15), Mike Kelly (PA-16), John Joyce (PA-13), Scott Perry (PA-10), Guy Reschenthaler (PA-14), Dan Meuser (PA-09), and Lloyd Smucker (PA-11) signed the letter, which highlights that, on preponderance, when the same party controls the Senate and the White House during a presidential election year, the Senate confirms a president’s Supreme Court nominee.
The letter also points out comments Senator Casey made during the 2016 presidential election year stating that the Senate had a responsibility to vote on a president’s Supreme Court nominee.
