March 24, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting Sen. Jerry Moran’s (R-Kan.) statement that “the process ought to go forward” for President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland:
“Jerry Moran’s decision to cave on considering Obama’s Supreme Court nominee is incomprehensible. As the former head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Moran spent the past two years telling America that they needed a GOP majority to stop Obama from fundamentally transforming America. Now, Moran is opening the door for a Supreme Court nominee who would lock in Obama’s agenda for a generation. This is an outright betrayal of the very GOP Senate majority which Moran successfully led the fight to achieve. Jerry Moran needs to understand one simple fact, stopping Obama’s agenda is his job, and pandering to the hard left which demands that he kowtow to their whims is hopefully a misquote rather than his considered position.”
