Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement after President Obama announced his nominee for the Supreme Court: 

“While the president has the right to announce a nominee, the US Senate has the same constitutional right to opt against confirming that nominee. American’s have seen this president manipulate the legal system and thwart the constitutional process for the rule of law. The constituents that I represent want their voice to be heard and for this president to be held accountable. I support Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s decision not to move forward with a confirmation process.”
