Tell the Senate: #WeNeedNine

Call the Senate
Tell your Senator: #DoYourJob and hold a fair hearing and a timely vote on President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Chief Judge Merrick Garland.


  • Since 1875, every Supreme Court nominee has received a Senate hearing or a vote.
  • The President's Supreme Court Nominee, Chief Judge Merrick Garland has more federal experience than any Supreme Court nominee in history. 
  • Since 1900, six justices have been confirmed in a presidential election year, including President Reagan's appointee Justice Kennedy, who was confirmed with a Democratic-controlled Senate.
  • Since 1975, the average time from nomination to confirmation is 67 days. 
  • It would be harmful and and dangerous if Congress fails to act on the President's nominee.
  • The Court's 4-4 decisions have no value in establishing precedent on which future decisions can rely, and would prevent uniform nationwide rules. 
  • An empty bench will result in an unsustainable uncertainty - for the law, for individual liberties, and for our economy.
