WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) issued the following statement on future Supreme Court confirmations:
 
“Roles will be eventually reversed when a Democratic president nominates a Supreme Court justice. For the good of the nation, Republicans must resist the urge to reciprocate the politics of personal destruction when that time comes. The toxic search and destroy tactics employed by Senate Democrats during the Kavanaugh confirmation have debased the integrity of the Supreme Court, disgraced our political discourse, and upended innocent lives. It revealed the dark and disturbing depths one side is willing to go to win at all costs, regardless of the collateral damage – including lasting harm to our nation, our institutions, and our citizens. If Republicans ever decide to emulate the Democrats’ search and destroy playbook, they can count me out. Doing so would stoop Congress to a level we should never see again. America needs and deserves better.”
