Fidelity first to the Constitution

The writer of the Feb. 6 letter “Trump is not senators’ priority” has it wrong.

When an elected official takes the oath of office, he or she swears first and foremost to uphold the Constitution. That is where their loyalties should lie. Country first, then constituents, then party.

The GOP’s loyalty to President Donald Trump and party first is why we are in this mess.
