Senate Democrats need to stop resisting and confirm Neomi Rao to D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals

Feb. 5, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Senate to confirm Neomi Rao to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia:

“President Trump has nominated an exemplary person to serve on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for D.C. in Neomi Rao.  Neomi Rao has proven herself to be an expert on the exact type of regulatory and administrative law issues that come before that court having served in the Office of Management and Budget overseeing the regulatory agenda.  Based upon recent comments, it is a shame that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer does not seem capable of seeing past his blind partisan opposition of President Trump to join in the confirmation of this qualified woman.  It is inexcusable for Senate Democrats to continue their politics of personal destruction against any nominee in the hopes that they can wish away the fact that President Trump won the election in 2016. It’s time to confirm Neomi Rao.”
