John Mason reports in The Daily Mail that U.S. Representative Chris Gibson (R-Kinderhook) thinks the U.S. Senate should act on President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to succeed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died Feb. 13. It is never taken the Senate longer then 125 days to consider a Supreme Court nomination. Gibson said the Senate should consider the president’s nominee, even though Republican Senate leadership has said they would not vote on any Obama nomination. “The Senate has every right not to confirm, but they ought to go through the process,” Gibson said. “This is a Senate vote, not a House vote. I don’t get a vote in the House. I put a strong emphasis on the Constitution. It was designed to bring us together and allow for evolutionary change that reflects the will of the people.” Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
