Boozman Statement on Meeting With Judge Garland

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after meeting with Supreme Court nominee Judge Merrick Garland:

“Americans deserve a voice on the future direction of the Supreme Court. I strongly disagree with President Obama's contention that the Senate must rubber-stamp his nominee in the final year of his presidency. However, I believe we can disagree without being disagreeable, which is why I accepted the request of the White House to meet with Judge Garland.

During our meeting I conveyed to Judge Garland my position, which is that the next president should fill the vacancy. My position is firm. That means I will not advocate for hearings or a vote, nor will I support filling the vacancy with President Obama's pick after the election.”
