MADISON -- Gov. Scott Walker and Attorney General Brad Schimel are warning Senate Democrats against blocking a vote on President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. But with the warning, there were questions -- some of which the governor would not answer.
Alongside a conservative group called the 'Judicial Crisis Network,' Walker and Schimel vouched for Pres. Trump's pick.
"This judge deserves consideration, he deserves a hearing, and he deserves an up or down vote," Gov. Walker said.
But the governor repeatedly would not answer when asked, if he would be okay if Democrats blocked a future nominee in the final year of Pres. Trump's term -- as Republicans did with Pres. Obama's nominee last year.
"I'm not here to hypothesize on what's going to happen in the third year. I'm here to advocate for what's before us right now," Walker said.
Schimel said it was 'reasonable' for Republicans to block a vote on Obama nominee Merrick Garland last year -- and Democrats should not retaliate now.
"If the tables were turned and if Secretary Clinton had won for president, if she were now nominating someone, I would not excuse Republicans in the Senate for not giving that person an up or down vote right now," Schimel said.
Wednesday's event was the latest from conservative groups who are in swing states like Wisconsin targeting Senate Democrats, like Tammy Baldwin, who are up for re-election in 2018.
