Grassley, Ernst support hearings for Supreme Court nominee

U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst, both of Iowa, voiced their support for holding hearings or taking a vote on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

In a statement Monday, Grassley said "I’ve consistently said that taking up and evaluating a nominee in 2020 would be a decision for the current chairman of the Judiciary Committee and the Senate Majority Leader. Both have confirmed their intentions to move forward, so that’s what will happen."

Ernst also released a statement saying "Once the president puts forward his nominee for the Supreme Court, I will carry out my duty—as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee—to evaluate the nominee for our nation’s highest court."

President Trump has indicated he will announce his nominee to the court some time in the next few days.
