FreedomWorks president Adam Brandon made the following statement following the Senate’s confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch:
“In a rare moment of courage and commitment to a conservative cause, the Senate has won a victory that will help preserve the Constitution, probably for decades to come. Our activists put on the pressure to fight for a better judge than Merrick Garland by making almost 1.7 million contacts last year to Senate offices, and our community drove nearly 300,000 contacts in support of Judge Gorsuch’s nomination.
“The fortitude culminating in the change of precedent yesterday paves the way for President Trump to fill any other vacancies on the Court in the years to come with more constitutionalists. Imagine what else we could achieve if Republican leaders in Congress would fight for conservative causes all the time.”
