Across the state, residents of Wyoming continue to speak out against Senate Republicans’ refusal to do their job and give Judge Garland a hearing and vote.

Casper Star-Tribune: Move forward on high court (Editorial). “The U.S. Senate is the body that must confirm the president’s nominee. It is frustrating to hear some Senate Republicans play politics by insisting that a replacement should not be named until Obama’s successor takes office and nominates a justice for the senate’s consideration nearly one year from now. It is almost unforgivable that leading members of the party said that any candidate, no matter how worthy, would be rejected out of hand.”
