Tea Party Patriots Thank Sen. Ayotte for Working to Prevent a Liberal Majority on the Supreme Court


ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today after Senator Ayotte met with Merrick Garland.

“In the face of a fundamentally dishonest campaign by President Obama and Democrats to falsely portray liberal judge Merrick Garland as a ‘moderate,’ Senator Ayotte has stood by grassroots activists and promised they will have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. The American people have said they do not want the Senate to confirm another Democrat nominee who will hand liberals a five vote majority on the Court for a generation. We are thankful Sen. Ayotte understands Merrick Garland will be a fifth vote on the Court to gut cherished rights like the Second Amendment right to bear arms and opposes President Obama’s cynical attempt to deny the American people a voice.”
