Ginsburg mourning no reason to not confirm successor

Sept. 18, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement responding to the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg harkened back to a time when Americans could oppose each other on policy while maintaining cordial and friendly relationships with those they disagreed with — and she will be rightly mourned.

“While the passing of a Supreme Court Justice is always fraught with political intrigue, the election season makes this choice even more significant. With the President’s history of transparency and his recent announcement of potential appointees to the Supreme Court for public scrutiny, the constitutionalist judicial philosophy of any of his appointees is clear.

“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should take every step possible to expeditiously confirm any nominee President Trump should announce to replace Justice Ginsburg. This is a somber time for our nation but that does not relieve the President or the Senate of their responsibility to fill Justice Ginsburg’s seat.”
