Iowa Republican Women Laud President Trump’s SCOTUS Pick as Victory for Country
CEDAR RAPIDS (Oct. 27, 2020) – Iowa Federation of Republican Women President Barbara Hames-Bryant said the Iowa arm of the nation’s most influential women’s grassroots political organization “enthusiastically supports” the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court of the United States.
“Our elected senators have done the right thing by confirming Judge Barrett without delay,” Hames-Bryant of Cedar Rapids said in a statement released today. “We enthusiastically support President Trump’s nominee and congratulate Justice Barrett, who was sworn in last night after the Senate voted to confirm her.”
“The appointment provides seamless legal justice to serve the American people during these turbulent times.” Hames-Bryant continued. “Justice Barrett is tremendously qualified to fill the vacancy left by the passing of the honored and respected Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.”
Last week, thousands of Republican women across the nation signed an online petition issued by the National Federation of Republican Women in support of Justice Barrett, who, at 48, is the youngest justice on the Supreme Court. “The message from NFRW women to the Senate was loud and clear: ‘CONFIRM AMY!’” NFRW President Ann Schockett said.
Justice Barrett is a “brilliant jurist, devoted mother and steadfast American who serves as a role model for women everywhere,” Schockett stated. “She is loyal to the Constitution, will enforce the law and not legislate from the bench.”
