Patrick Murphy: Senate Should Confirm Merrick Garland
Running for the Democratic nomination to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., in the Senate, U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., cheered President Barack Obama for nominating federal Judge Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court.
"Today, President Obama put forward a nominee to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court and it's time for Senate Republicans to do their job,” Murphy said on Wednesday morning. “The Republican obstructionists who have vowed to stop any nominee from even being considered are doing a disservice to the American people — and are betraying the democratic values laid out in our Constitution. Americans are tired of the gridlock in Washington, and in the U.S. Senate I'll always fight to cut through the dysfunction and get things done for our nation."
