U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement with regard to the Supreme Court vacancy:

“We have much to consider over the coming days. The Supreme Court plays a fundamental role in the defense of our Constitution and in the protection of our rights and liberties. Once the president puts forward his nominee for the Supreme Court, I will carry out my duty—as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee—to evaluate the nominee for our nation’s highest court.”
