Statement on Alito Hearings

Washington, DC – Jim Manley, spokesman for Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, released the following statement today on the Alito nomination:

“News reports that Senator Reid told Senator Frist that Democrats would delay the committee vote on Judge Alito are inaccurate. No decision has been made regarding a Senate Judiciary Committee rule that permits any committee member to request a one-week postponement of a committee vote.”
