FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BARRY MOORE: JUSTICE BARRETT “EMINENTLY QUALIFIED” FOR SUPREME COURT FOLLOWING THIRD DAY OF HEARINGS
Enterprise, AL—Republican congressional nominee Barry Moore expressed his satisfaction with Justice Amy Coney Barrett following the third day of confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Barrett has been appointed by President Trump to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s death.
Moore said in a statement:
“Justice Amy Coney Barrett is a respected jurist, a wife, and the working mother of seven, including two adopted non-white children and a special needs child. She is everything that Democrats claim to admire, except that she’s a staunch Catholic, strongly pro-life, and firmly against judicial activism. Because she doesn’t march in lockstep to their progressive ideology, for two days she had to endure an abusive interrogation by Democrat Senators. Then on Thursday, while people that know her testified about her high character and sterling qualifications, a string of liberal hacks made up imaginary scenarios of horror that completely ignored what she herself had said the previous two days.
“Justice Barrett is eminently qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. Her answers during her hearing showed her to be knowledgeable about the law as well as able to hold her own against ‘gotcha’ questions from the Committee’s Democrats. I’m encouraged when she says that judges should interpret, not make the laws, and I believe that she will approach each case fairly and impartially.
“In terms of the timing of her appointment, I believe the President was right to make an appointment as soon as possible, even this close to the election. The Supreme Court traditionally opens on the first Monday in October, and with the number of important cases currently before the Court leaving it one member short any longer than absolutely necessary isn’t reasonable or appropriate.”
A vote to send Justice Barrett’s nomination to the Senate floor is scheduled for October 22.
Moore is running for Congress in Alabama’s Second District. He is on the ballot in the general election on November 3rd as the Republican nominee for the seat. He is a Veteran, a small businessman, a husband, and a father of four from Enterprise.
