Texas GOP Chairman Tom Mechler Statement on Obama’s SCOTUS Nominee

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Austin- “I’d like to start off by commending Texas Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz for giving Texans a voice in determining the next Supreme Court Justice. Our lame-duck President is using Merrick Garland as a puppet to score political points in an election year. Obama is attempting to tip the balance of the Supreme Court with a liberal justice in the eleventh hour of his presidency but fortunately for us there are conservative Republicans, like Cruz and Cornyn, willing to stand in his way. ”
