WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today spoke on the Senate floor to urge swift confirmation of a number of well-qualified judicial nominees. She also condemned partisan political tactics that have needlessly delayed confirmation of many of President Trump’s nominees and prevented the advancement of important legislative efforts.
“By filibustering against qualified nominees, Democrats are keeping the Senate from tackling our important legislative work. Starting with Justice Neil Gorsuch to the nominees being considered this week, President Trump has nominated mainstream judges who will serve our country for years in the judiciary,” Senator Capito said. “We should confirm these judges and act promptly to fill other judicial vacancies.”
