Democratic Party of Virginia Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement:
"Virginia Republicans are hell-bent on obstructing President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, despite the fact that none of them were elected to the Senate or hold the Constitutional authority to confirm a Supreme Court justice.
"Virginians are sick and tired of Republicans' pathetic attempt to distract from Trump and thwart President Obama's legacy at all costs. With Virginia Congressional Republicans constantly
obstructing progress, it comes as no surprise that Congress's approval rating is at an all-time low.
"On behalf of the Democratic Party of Virginia, we'd like to wholeheartedly thank Senator Tim Kaine and Senator Mark Warner for their commitment to supporting President Obama's Constitutional authority and the will of the people."
