WASHINGTON, D.C., December 19, 2019 – Following the Democratic primary debate Thursday night, Alliance for Justice Action Campaign President Nan Aron issued the following statement:
“It is critical that voters understand the way President Trump and Senate Republicans have completely reshaped the courts, appointing ultraconservative and unqualified judges to fulfill their extreme agenda. We applaud the debate’s moderators for bringing up this important topic. Senator Amy Klobuchar insisted that vacancies on the federal bench should be filled “right away,” and we couldn’t agree more. The next president must act immediately to start undoing the damage by appointing judges who are prepared to uphold the rule of law.
