Bennet Opposes Rewriting of the Constitution, Calls on Senate to Do Its Job

Urges Senate to consider Supreme Court Nominee as has been done throughout nation's history

In a speech on the Senate floor yesterday, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet opposed efforts to delay consideration of a nominee to replace Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, saying the tactic was akin to replacing Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution with so-called "standard practice" that has no real historical precedent.
