Joining tens of thousands of Republican women across the nation, Iowa Federation of Republican Women (IowaFRW) President Gloria Mazza today in a statement congratulated Justice Brett Kavanaugh and thanked the senators who voted to confirm his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. He was sworn in Saturday.

“This is what’s right for our great country, our constitution and the principles on which it was founded,” Mazza said. “As women, as Republicans, and as U.S. citizens, we have stood with President Trump, Justice Kavanaugh and our own United States Senator from Iowa, Charles Grassley, since the beginning of this process.”

“Justice Kavanaugh’s entire life’s work earned him this nomination and he has our unwavering support,” Mazza asserted. “We also thank every senator who voted to confirm Justice Kavanaugh, despite tremendous pressure from angry liberals who were willing to stop at nothing,” she added. “We are especially proud of and grateful to Senator Grassley, who serves as Senate Judiciary chair. He held steadfast throughout and his leadership was of the highest caliber. We are proud to say he is an Iowan.”

Jody Rushton, president of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), said the nationwide group with organizations in all 50 states, has been building an advocacy campaign for Kavanaugh since President Trump announced the nomination on July 9. The NFRW board passed a resolution on Sept. 15 and mobilized its members to lobby senators on behalf of Kavanaugh’s confirmation. “Over the past few weeks, I have heard from thousands of our Republican Women members,” Rushton said. “They have expressed disgust with the way Democrats have polluted and politicized the confirmation process in an attempt to destroy a good man who by all measures is eminently qualified to serve on our nation’s highest court.”
