Kaine ignores voters

Just a day after a new poll showed that voters want Judge Neil Gorsuch confirmed, failed Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine announced that he will attempt to block the nominee’s confirmation.

A new poll from Huffington Post/YouGov showed that by a 17-point margin, Americans think the Senate should vote to confirm Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, with just 23% saying he should not be confirmed. But Kaine has decided to ignore voters, not only choosing to vote against Gorsuch, but announcing that he will join Chuck Schumer and the far left in their filibuster.

“By ignoring the will of voters and joining the filibuster of Judge Neil Gorsuch, Tim Kaine is showing where his loyalties truly lie,” said NRSC Spokesman Bob Salera. “Tim Kaine became a darling of the left last year, and it is clear he is more interested in pleasing Washington liberals than in representing Virginia.”
