FreedomWorks today praised Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) for resisting a coordinated effort by liberal groups to pressure him into holding hearings and votes on President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee.
“The fight over the future of the Supreme Court is one of the most important battles we’ve faced in recent memory. Chairman Grassley has shown tremendous resolve in this fight and withstood a barrage of attacks from Democrats and liberal groups,” said FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon. “Apparently, those who are targeting him don’t understand that the Senate is not an extension of the White House; it’s not a rubber stamp for any administration. That’s something Democrats believed in previous judicial nominations but have so conveniently forgotten.”
