Sen. Burr Statement on Filling Current Supreme Court Vacancy

Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement on the current Supreme Court vacancy:

“The President has every right under the Constitution to nominate the individual of his choosing to fill the current Supreme Court vacancy. The Senate’s role is to provide its advice and consent. In this instance, unlike 2016, Americans voted to ensure the Senate and Presidency are both held by the same party. I believe the Senate should consider President Trump’s nominee as early as possible and I intend to carefully review their qualifications once that individual is named.”
