Ernst on Supreme Court Vacancy

WASHINGTON - 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.
