Press Release

Moments after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement yesterday, far-left activist groups came out swinging, penning a letter urging Senate Democrats, including Claire McCaskill, to reject any of the 25 names on President Trump’s shortlist for the court.

The letter was signed by some of Senator McCaskill’s most loyal supporters from Planned Parenthood, End Citizens United and Center for American Progress. So question is: will Claire McCaskill stand with her constituents and confirm President Trump’s nominee to the court? Or will McCaskill double down on her obstruction to appease the radical groups who’ve loyally supported her all these years?

“Voters are watching closely to see if Senator McCaskill will continue ‘resisting’ to appease her liberal special interest friends or if she’ll finally do what’s right and confirm President Trump’s pick to the Supreme Court,” said NRSC Spokesman Bob Salera. “Voters saw how Senator McCaskill fought tooth-and-nail to obstruct Neil Gorsuch’s nomination just last year, and they won’t be so forgiving if McCaskill chooses to play the same silly games all over again.”
