WASHINGTON, D.C. — With the Senate coming back into session next Monday, September 9, FreedomWorks will once again urge Majority Leader McConnell (R-Ky.) to increase the rate at which the Senate confirms the 146 pending Trump Administration nominees.
Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“Senate Democrats are doing their best to ensure that the executive branch lacks the staff necessary to advance President Trump and the GOP’s bold, conservative agenda. With the Senate about to return from August recess, it’s time for Leader McConnell and President Trump’s Republican allies to pick up the pace and chip away at the nominees awaiting confirmation.”
“President Trump has nominated these great candidates, and it’s the Senate’s job to confirm them. There are currently 146 nominees awaiting Senate confirmation, compared to the 91 at this point during Obama’s presidency. The Republican Senate showed potential, having recently confirmed more than 60 judges and other executive branch nominees, but there’s still more that can and must be done. FreedomWorks calls upon the Senate to keep up the good work and focus on confirming President Trump’s nominees. ”
Over the next two weeks, FreedomWorks grassroots activist community will drive messages to their Senators urging them to proceed with confirming President Trump’s nominees. FreedomWorks activists will also drive messages on Twitter and attend local events across the country to remind the Senate that far too many nominees still await confirmation.
