Two hours prior to hearing about the death of Justice Antonin Scalia on Saturday, Texas Republican leadership passed a resolution calling for the U.S. Senate to block the confirmation of anyone nominated by President Obama.
As Written By Lana Shadwick, Breitbart:
As reported by Breitbart Texas yesterday, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead at a luxury resort in west Texas on Saturday morning. The Justice apparently died of natural causes in his sleep after a day of quail hunting at Cibolo Creek Ranch near Marfa, Texas.
The resolution put to the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) of the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) passed by an almost unanimous vote on Saturday before anyone had heard of the untimely death of Justice Scalia. The resolution passed out of committee on Friday, Mark S. Ramsey, SREC SD7 and Resolutions Committee Chairman told Bretibart Texas.
