ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today following Senator Toomey’s meeting with Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

“We welcome Senator Toomey’s insistence that the American people should not be denied a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court justice.  Even the New York Times has said a Supreme Court with Merrick Garland would be the most liberal court in over 50 years and polls have shown the American people, by a wide margin, do not want a liberal-dominated Supreme Court.  With the public divided and so frustrated with Washington, Senator Toomey understands the last thing they want is for President Obama to create a liberal court for which he can never be held accountable by the voters.  Instead, it’s best to let the people decide – through their votes for President and U.S. Senate – who the next justice will be.”
