Chris Christie Calls For GOP Senate To Hold Hearings On Obama SCOTUS Nom

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Monday he believed the GOP-controlled Senate should hold hearings on President Obama’s eventual nominee to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.

“As I’ve always said, I believe that’s absolutely the right thing to do,” Christie said at a press conference when asked if Senate Republicans should hold hearings on President Obama’s nominee to replace the last Justice Antonin Scalia.

“People can always vote up or down however they choose, but hearings should be held,” said Christie, who dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed Donald Trump.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
