“When this Republican President was elected in 2016, and when the American people expanded the Republican majority in the Senate elections of 2018, the expectation of the American people was that should a Supreme Court vacancy arise that that vacancy should be filled. We will act because the American people want us to act. The people of Indiana, in particular, want me to act on this forthcoming nomination,” said Senator Young. “Historical precedent supports action in a case like this, clearly.”
“The President has put forward a list of incredibly talented potential nominees, including Indiana’s own Judge Amy Coney Barrett, but I think any of the judges that the President has been discussing in recent days would be an excellent choice. It is my intention to dutifully evaluate the records of whoever the President ultimately nominates and to ensure bold action following his nomination. I have high confidence that the American people are going to be favorably impressed by a faithful constitutionalist nominee, and they’ll be proud of the person who becomes the next Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States,” Senator Young continued.
