Members of Tea Party Patriots Field Team made a trip to the Granite State last week, where they recruited local tea partyers to urge Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) to preserve former Justice Antonin Scalia’s legacy on the Supreme Court and continue rejecting President Obama’s liberal, anti-Second-Amendment Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.
“Empowered with a lifetime appointment, the next Supreme Court justice will likely have a significant impact on the court and the people of our country for years,” Sen. Ayotte says in a statement declining support for the president’s Supreme Court pick.
D.C. Circuit Court Judge Merrick Garland has a record of far-left rulings on issues ranging from Second-Amendment rights to business regulation and would be the sure-fire means of tipping the Supreme Court scale in favor of President Obama’s liberal policy agenda.
For the rest of 2016, Tea Party Patriots will focus heavily on Senate Republicans, making sure they keep their promises to hold firm against the pressure from the progressive left. This means no hearings and no votes on any nomination by President Obama so that the American people can have a say in the process. After all, this is a lifetime appointment. The citizenry deserve the right to impact such a monumental decision.
