Congressman Heck Should Tell His GOP Colleagues in The Senate to Do Their Job, Give Merrick Garland a Hearing

Las Vegas, NV – Today, Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Zukowski released the following statement after President Obama announced his nomination for the Supreme Court:

Congressman Heck votes with his fellow Washington Republican nine times out of ten, so unfortunately it isn’t surprising he refuses to tell them to do their jobs. It’s time for Congressman Heck to call on his Republican colleagues in the Senate to do their job and give Judge Garland a fair hearing – Congressman Heck’s failure to do so proves that he is part of the partisan dysfunction in Washington.  Republicans like Congressman Heck need to stop playing party politics and do the jobs they are paid to do.
