Tea Party Patriots CEO Reacts to Merrick Garland Nomination


ATLANTA, Ga. – Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today in reaction to President Obama’s Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland.

“Republicans in the Senate are absolutely right in standing with the American people, they deserve a say in this all-important decision which will affect the nation’s highest court for a generation. President Obama should not deny the people a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court Justice. Let the people decide who the next president is and let the next president select the next justice. The President is ignoring over 80 years of precedence to selfishly try to cement his liberal legacy. Merrick Garland will be a reliable liberal vote on every meaningful case that comes before him and President Obama has already put two liberal extremists on the Supreme Court. The President shouldn’t be permitted to dramatically swing the balance of court as a lame duck president who can no longer be held accountable to the American people.”
