HAGER CITY, WI – Derrick Van Orden joined a rally outside of Senator Tammy Baldwin’s office in La Crosse yesterday calling for the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
Derrick strongly supports the nomination and spoke to the crowd gathered about her qualifications.
WKBT and the La Crosse Tribune covered the event. See below for excerpts from their coverage.
Wisconsin’s third congressional district candidate Derrick Van Orden joined supporters of the confirmation of Judge Barrett for a rally Thursday in La Crosse.
It was along 7th Street, outside of Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin’s La Crosse office.
Baldwin has said that voters should be allowed to cast their ballots before the nomination and confirmation process moves forward.
Van Orden says the Democrats are intentionally slowing the confirmation process.
“Amy Coney Barrett is quite possibly one of the most qualified jurist ever to be put up to become a member of the Supreme Court. And to try to play these little administrative tricks that they’re doing to slow down her confirmation is quite frankly sad,” said Republican candidate for the 3rd Congressional district Derrick Van Orden.
“We cannot allow this to take place any longer. This woman needs to be confirmed, put on the Supreme Court so we can carry on as a nation. These people keep putting politics above our country and we’ve had enough,” candidate for Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District, Derrick Van Orden, told the crowd….
With election day nearly three weeks away, those at the rally were energized to get the vote out for Republicans.
“We’ve got a couple weeks left here,” Van Orden said to the crowd, “And I want you all to remember this is the most important election in the history of our nation.”
“And looking, and seeing what the Democratic Party, including Tammy Baldwin and Ron Kind, are willing to do to prevent the United States from functioning as a country is an example of why we absolutely have to get Donald J. Trump reelected,” he said.
