Martin: Grassroots Activists Are Furious Sen. Moran Joining Pres. Obama to Deny Them A Voice in Next Supreme Court Justice

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to reports that Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) broke with Senate Republicans and endorsed hearings for President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

“Grassroots activists in Kansas and across the country are furious that Senator Jerry Moran has decided to join President Obama in denying them a voice in the next Supreme Court Justice with their votes in November. Merrick Garland is a liberal who will become the fifth vote on the Supreme Court to take away our Second Amendment right to bear arms and side with big government agencies like the EPA and IRS over the American people. We hope Sen. Moran will reconsider and stand with Kansans and the American people, rather than President Obama and his liberal allies. It’s this kind of outrageous behavior that leads Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund activists and supporters to think seriously about encouraging Dr. Milton Wolf to run against Sen. Moran in the August GOP primary.”
