After Refusing to Meet with Merrick Garland, Senator Heller Makes Time for Trump’s SCOTUS Pick

Las Vegas, NV – Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement in response to reports that Republican Senator Dean Heller is meeting with President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee today:

“After snubbing and disrespecting President Obama’s highly qualified consensus Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland for nearly a year, Senator Heller is rushing to meet with President Trump’s choice. Despite the will of Nevada voters, who spoke clearly against Donald Trump in the 2016 election, Dean Heller’s top priority all along has been holding open this stolen seat for Trump to fill.”
