U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) released a statement immediately on the announcement by President Donald J. Trump’s of his nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Loeffler was in attendance at the White House for the nomination ceremony.
“As the first U.S. Senator to call for a vote before the election, I am so proud to support Amy Coney Barrett as President Trump’s nominee for associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. With her background as a former clerk to the late Justice Scalia and an originalist, Judge Barrett will protect individual liberties including the right to life, the Second Amendment and religious liberties by ensuring the Constitution, and our laws, are applied as written,” Loeffler said in the statement. “While she brings a tremendous record of upholding the Constitution, personal integrity and sterling qualifications, we know that the worst elements of the Left will come after Judge Barrett with everything they have. But as someone who has stood up to the radical Left’s cancel culture and won, my advice for a fellow strong conservative woman is this: Keep going, keep pushing, keep fighting and keep winning.
“Our Constitution, the right to life and the future of our country are all worth fighting for. My Republican colleagues and I will have your back, and we will confirm you as the next female United States Supreme Court associate justice.”
Barrett has to be confirmed by the Senate through a vote currently expected to take place before the Nov. 3, 2020 vote.
