Women for Amy Bus Tour Applauds Limiting Debate on Nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett
Penny Nance: “Conservative women across the country celebrate this victory over the religious bigotry of Democrats.”
Washington, D.C. – In light of the Senate vote today to limit debate on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, leaders of the Women for Amy Bus Tour eagerly anticipate a vote on her confirmation Monday evening.
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), made the following statement as she sets off on the final leg of the twelve-state Women for Amy Bus Tour.
“On the eve of the vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court, conservative women across the country celebrate this victory over the religious bigotry of Democrats. We applaud Senate Republicans for treating Judge Barrett with respect and moving ahead with her confirmation, despite the Democrats’ resisting their constitutional obligation on political grounds.
“Judge Barrett has demonstrated she has the skills, temperament, and qualifications to serve on the Supreme Court, yet Democrats are fighting her confirmation every step of the way.
“For a party that claims to promote the empowerment of women, Democrats are showing their true colors; they only support women who agree with their political ideology. All others are free to be treated with contempt, as they have done to Judge Barrett.”
This week, the Women for Amy Bus Tour makes stops in Texas and Arizona. For more information on the tour, please go to: https://concernedwomen.org/women-for-amy/
