For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON, DC, October 27 – In response to comments by Sen. Ted Cruz suggesting that the Supreme Court could continue to function with eight justices. Allicance for Justice Action Campaign President Nan Aron issued the following statement:

“Ted Cruz has confirmed what John McCain let slip last week: the Republican blueprint for a Hillary Clinton presidency is to obstruct and blockade the nominations of federal judges, plain and simple. It’s no coincidence that the conservative press and blogoshpere are suddenly rife with opinion pieces suggesting that a shrunken Court can operate just fine. This is the game plan now: kneecap the federal judiciary, shred the Constitutionm and – byt the way – all those things Republicans said about letting the American people have a say in the next Supreme Court nomination? The’ve been exposed as the lies they were.”
