U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
Rewarding Democrats’ tactics now would not stop their attacks on our institutions. Their threats predate this new vacancy by over a year. Their recklessness only underscores the importance that we do our job and confirm a nominee who truly respects the Constitution.

Senate Democrats just voted to filibuster the annual funding for the U.S. armed forces. It’s the second time they have blocked defense funding in two months. We can’t advance it. Remember when Democrats said their impeachment obsession wouldn't stop them from legislating?
