U.S. Senator Capito issues statement on U.S. Supreme Court nomination

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., has released a statement regarding President Donald Trump’s intent to fill the United States Supreme Court vacancy following the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.

“President Trump and the Republican Senate, both elected by the American people, should act to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Ginsburg’s passing. The Constitution authorizes the president to name a nominee, and it gives the Senate the power to approve or disapprove of that nomination. West Virginians and the American people expect us to exercise that responsibility. I support the choice to move forward with the confirmation process and will consider President Trump’s nominee on her merits as West Virginians would expect me to do. In these trying and polarized times, it is important to exercise our constitutional authority and move forward with the process.”
