WASHINGTON, DC – FreedomWorks strongly condemns Sen. Flake’s (R- Ariz.) public threat to stall President Trump’s judicial nominees in the Senate. Sen. Flake’s obstruction last week of nominee Britt Grant to the Atlanta-based 11th Circuit Court of Appeals is unacceptable. The Arizona senator’s actions reflect a dysfunctional Senate where progress on a bold, conservative agenda has been slowed to a crawl.
Noah Wall, FreedomWorks Vice President of Advocacy, commented:
"Senator Flake has resorted to petty obstruction in the Senate. While FreedomWorks does not agree with President Trump’s proposed tariffs, confirming judicial nominees is a constitutional duty that Senator Flake is intentionally neglecting."
"Senator Flake is an unpopular lame duck Senator who knows he cannot win reelection. He’s using his remaining days in office to obstruct and delay an already dysfunctional Senate– that’s just bad for America."
