With the sudden death of Justice Scalia, our Supreme Court is down to only 8 Justices. In the coming days we expect President Obama to nominate a new Justice to the Court. Already there have been calls by Republicans in the Senate to attempt to block a nominee for over 300 days until a new President takes over. This is a disgusting attempt to play partisan games with our highest court. We cannot allow Republicans to shut down one of our branches of government.
Thus we call on Senator Johnson to stand up to his friends in the Senate and send the clear message: our Supreme Court is not their partisan playground. We call on Senator Johnson t quickly approve President Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court.
