Ted Strickland Statement On Sen. Portman Refusing To Consider A Supreme Court Nominee

In response to news that Senator Rob Portman believes the Senate should refuse to consider a new Supreme Court nominee, Ted Strickland issued the following statement:

“Senator Portman has abandoned his constitutional duties to the people of Ohio in order to once again prioritize the interests of the Washington power brokers that he serves. Senator Portman is failing to do his job, shirking his responsibilities to our nation, jeopardizing the institutions of our democracy and engaging in exactly the kind of dysfunctional behavior that frustrates Ohioans about Congress. In the U.S. Senate I will follow the Constitution and uphold the responsibilities that the people of Ohio expect of me — while Senator Portman has proven his only allegiance is to the broken politics of his political leaders in Washington.”
