Burr Statement on Supreme Court Nominee: American People Deserve a Voice

March 16, 2016

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) commented following the President’s announcement of his nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the United States Supreme Court:

“The American people deserve a voice in the nomination of the next Supreme Court Justice. This appointment could easily tip the balance of the court in a direction not supported by the American people as evidenced by 2014’s election results giving Republicans both the Senate and House.”
