JEFFERSON CITY – Americans for Prosperity-Missouri is disappointed in Sen. McCaskill’s NO vote to confirm Judge Gorsuch. Last week, Sen. McCaskill warned a group of donors to pitfalls of blocking Judge Gorsuch and proclaimed, “Gorsuch was one of the better ones.” On Thursday, Sen. McCaskill voted against cloture that would allow an up or down vote on the nominee. Meanwhile, AFP-MO thanks Sen. Roy Blunt for voting to confirm Judge Gorsuch.
Judge Gorsuch was confirmed in a bipartisan vote, 54-45.
State Director Jeremy Cady issued the following statement:
“Only last week did Sen. McCaskill admit Judge Gorsuch ‘was one of the better ones.’ Yet, when asked her decision, Sen. McCaskill opted to play political games and side with the Washington establishment instead of listening to her constituents. We plan to hold Sen. McCaskill accountable for her decision to engage in political theater and utilize our grassroots force in Missouri to educate voters on her misguided decision to block and oppose the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch.
“Americans for Prosperity thanks Sen. Blunt for his support and vote to confirm Judge Gorsuch. We believe Judge Gorsuch will be a great addition to the Court.”
