Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Nicholas Scutari's Comments On Governor Christie's Supreme Court Nominee Bruce Harris Prove That Democrats Are Just Playing Politics


"Before a second of testimony has been heard or a single question has been asked, once again Democrats are disrespecting the nomination process and rushing to judgment to kill another qualified man's nomination before he even sits in the committee room.  Nominees to our state’s highest court deserve better than this."
–Kevin Roberts, Deputy Press Secretary, Officer of Governor Chris Christie

SHOT: Senate Judiciary Chairman Nicholas Scutari: “I don’t think it’s going to be an extraordinarily long hearing because there’s just not a lot of experience to question him on…” (Matthew Arco, “Senate GOP: ‘Only God Knows’ If Harris Will Be Released From Committee,” Politicker NJ, 5/22/12) 

CHASER: Senate Democrats Spent Only 23 Minutes Out Of A Six Hour Hearing Questioning Phillip Kwon On His Experience And Qualifications To Sit On The New Jersey Supreme Court. “It’s not surprising in a hearing that lasted six hours and four minutes, it took the Democrats three hours before there was the first question about Phil’s qualifications, to then spend only twenty-three minutes on his qualifications and judicial philosophy. That’s right: a total of twenty-three minutes in six hours and four minutes was spent on Phil Kwon’s qualifications and his judicial philosophy.  – Governor Chris Christie, 3/22/12
