No excuse for red state Senate Democrats’ silence in face of anti-Kavanaugh mob

Oct. 3, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D) for their silence in the wake of the mob that has coalesced against the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

“These red state Democrats pretend to be bipartisans who reach across the aisle, but the last few weeks have proven that nothing could be further from the truth. Their silence in the midst of an angry mob encouraged by Senate Democrat leadership is unforgivable. The failure of these senators to even recognize the inherent unfairness of Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein’s deliberate mishandling of the uncorroborated charges of Christine Blasey Ford clearly shows that partisanship trumps the common sense the American people expect from their senators. With the vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh pending, the people of West Virginia, Indiana, Florida, Montana, Pennsylvania, Missouri and North Dakota need to contact their senators and tell them to take a break from D.C. power games and vote for the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It is time for them to actually represent their constituents and the interests of our great country.”
