Dear South Dakota citizens,
Please contact Sens. Mike Rounds and John Thune and tell them to stand against Sen. Mitch McConnell (regarding the Supreme Court vacancy).
Here is the stand that both Thune and Rounds made in 2016. Contact them and ask them to follow through with the stand that they took on March 16, 2016.
• Sen. Thune, press release, (March 16, 2016) — “The American people deserve to have their voices heard on the nomination of the next Supreme Court justice, who could fundamentally alter the direction of the Supreme Court for a generation. Since the next presidential election is already underway, the next president should make this lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.”
• Rounds, Kristi Noem, Thune react to Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Mitchell Daily Republic, March 16, 2016 — Sen. Mike Rounds: “Whoever is confirmed to fill the open seat on the Supreme Court will be serving a lifetime appointment. ..,. Keeping in mind the current political makeup of the court, the man or woman who will replace Justice Scalia has the potential to hold incredible influence over the ideological direction of the court for a generation to come. It is critically important that the next justice is committed to upholding the principles of the Constitution. We owe it to Justice Scalia, our judicial system and the Constitution to uphold the highest standards when determining our next Supreme Court Justice. We also owe it to the American people to make certain their voice is heard in this election.”
If the senators do not stand as they did in 2016, please realize that these senators are hypocrites. They would not be worthy of representing South Dakota citizens. When a true South Dakota person says something, they stand by it. If they do not, you cannot trust anything else they say.
