Washington, DC – Justice Kennedy’s decision to retire puts in play a key issue in November’s Senate election, one that could be decisive for Sen. Tammy Baldwin, according to David McIntosh, president of the Club for Growth and a founder of the Federalist Society.
“In 2016 we saw the importance Wisconsin voters placed on the selection of Supreme Court Justices,” McIntosh explained. “They sent a clear message of support for the Constitutional Conservatives President Trump promised to appoint. He kept his promise with the nomination of Justice Gorsuch. Unfortunately, Sen. Baldwin ignored the will of these voters and followed the Democratic Party’s demand for a far-left nominee who pledges to advance the party’s ultra-liberal positions on a wide range of issues, no matter their constitutionality.”
“Sen. Baldwin will have another opportunity to vote for a well-qualified jurist who is committed to following the law as written. Her decision will not go unnoticed.”
