Tea Party Patriots Calls for an End to Judicial Gridlock


Atlanta , GA – Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement urging Senate Republicans to support Sen. Lankford’s proposed reforms that will ensure well-qualified judges will be appointed to the federal bench.

“It is unacceptable that Democrats are abusing the rules of the Senate to create gridlock intended to stop President Trump from being able to appoint well-qualified judges to the federal bench. The American people elected President Trump in part because he promised to appoint judges who would interpret our Constitution the way the Founding Fathers intended. Democrats are creating gridlock to thwart the will of the American people, and Republicans must act to stop this outrage. Senate Republicans should support Sen. James Lankford’s proposed reforms that ensure nominees have plenty of time for floor debate but restricts Democrats’ ability to cause gridlock and deny well-qualified judges an up-or-down vote.”
