No SCOTUS Nomination Until After 2018 Midterm Elections

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Petition Statement

In 2016, this was Sen. Mitch McConnell’s statement on the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."

We demand that this Congress refuse to seat a Supreme Court justice until after the American people have a voice in the mid-term elections.
There are currently 148,681 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300,000 signatures!

Petition Background

I was infuriated by Mitch McConnell blocking President Obama's Supreme Court nomination and we must insist he follow the same standard now to fill the seat left vacant with the resignation of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

A conservative nominee like Brett Kavanaugh is a threat to reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and Americans' right to health care.

It is more imperative because this president and his campaign staff are under investigation for foreign collusion with Russia. Until these investigations are complete, Trump should not have a say about the next lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.
