Here’s what Jan LaRue, chief counsel of Concerned Women for America, had to say about the Democrats’ failed filibuster:
“Senators did what is necessary in order to give Judge Alito an ‘up’ or ‘down’ vote tomorrow morning. The idea of filibustering a fine nominee like Judge Alito is beyond ridiculous—it’s an abuse of the advice-and-consent process and defies the will of the American people.
“There is absolutely nothing in Judge Alito’s past, present or foreseeable future that would justify the first-ever filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee in U.S. history. Everything we have learned about this man confirms the fact that he should be seated on the Supreme Court.
“We look forward to a final Senate vote tomorrow morning so that we can welcome Judge Alito as our next Supreme Court Justice.”
