Carlos Lopez-Cantera Wants GOP Senate to Reject Merrick Garland for Supreme Court
Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, who is running in the Republican primary to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., urged the GOP Senate majority to “stay fast” and oppose President Barack Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court.
"I strongly oppose President Obama's decision to blatantly ignore precedent and the will of the American people by putting up a Supreme Court nominee during an election year,” Lopez-Cantera said. “This president has proven we cannot trust him to uphold the Constitution, and we cannot trust that a nominee he puts forward will rule in accordance with the Constitution. I encourage Sen. McConnell to continue to stay fast in his usage of the checks and balances of the United States Senate. As Florida's next United States senator I will always ensure justice nominees uphold our Constitution in the regard to what our Founding Fathers envisioned.”
