Tester Statement on Timeline for Confirmation of a New Supreme Court Nominee

U.S. Senator Jon Tester released the following statement on the timeline for confirmation of a new Supreme Court nominee:

“Montanans begin voting in two weeks and, as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and my Republican colleagues said just four years ago, the American people must have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. There isn’t a separate set of rules for Republicans and Democrats—we should follow the precedent McConnell set and fill this vacancy when the next President and Senate are sworn in, regardless of who wins.”
