ADD YOUR NAME: No Supreme Court confirmation during Trump's campaign

Trump is back on the campaign trail.
DemocratsJoin us.
Trump held his first re-election campaign rally yesterday. Tell Senate Republicans to play by their own rules and refuse to confirm his Supreme Court nominee during the campaign.

Diane, let's take a stroll down memory lane.

Remember Merrick Garland -- President Obama's Supreme Court nominee who Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans stridently refused to confirm because of a totally fabricated notion that the Senate shouldn't confirm Supreme Court nominees during a presidential campaign?

Well, earlier this month Donald Trump picked Neil Gorsuch -- an ultra-conservative, anti-consumer, pro-business judge -- as his nominee to fill Merrick Garland's stolen Supreme Court seat. But yesterday, only 29 days into his presidency, Donald Trump held his first campaign rally for his 2020 re-election bid.

So, according to Mitch McConnell's standards, the Senate cannot and should not confirm Gorsuch to the Supreme Court because we are officially in campaign season.

Neil Gorsuch's nomination should be treated with the same respect that Republicans gave Merrick Garland -- it's only fair that Mitch McConnell play by his own rules.

Add your name: demand that no nominee be confirmed to the Supreme Court during Trump's re-election campaign:
