Manchin Urges West Virginians to Send Thoughts on Supreme Court Nominee Merrick Garland

Washington, D.C. – As he carefully evaluates the qualifications of Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is asking West Virginians to send their thoughts and concerns on his nomination to SupremeCourtNominee@Manchin.Senate.Gov. He is also encouraging West Virginians to review his qualifications and his record. 

"I look forward to evaluating Merrick Garland’s qualifications to be a justice on the Supreme Court,” Senator Manchin said. “Senators have a constitutional obligation to advise and consent on a nominee to fill this Supreme Court vacancy. During the vetting process, I’d like to hear the thoughts and concerns of West Virginians, and I encourage them to review his qualifications themselves.”
