TPPA Applauds Senate’s Confirmation of Judge Barrett to Supreme Court


The Senate approved Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court today. Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement.

“Despite the fierce resistance of the Democrat party and the mainstream media, President Trump and Senate Republicans were able to fill a Supreme Court vacancy in less than 40 days in the heart of a presidential campaign. That’s an incredible achievement.  Judge Barrett is exactly the kind of justice President Trump promised to nominate to our nation’s highest court — from a list he published in 2016, then updated, and then updated again — and he’s done it three times in four years. We thank all the Senators who voted for Judge Barrett today, especially Leader McConnell and Chairman Graham, who were indispensable to this process. And Sens. Sullivan, McSally, Gardner, Loeffler, Perdue, Ernst, Daines, and Tillis, each of whom stood up to fierce opposition to do the right thing, deserve special thanks. The conservative grassroots are energized by Judge Barrett’s confirmation, and we have no doubt she will serve our court with great distinction.”
