SBA List’s Dannenfelser Warns Vulnerable Democrat Senators Who Voted ‘No’: Voters will not Forget This Betrayal
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) celebrated as the U.S. Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Vulnerable Democrat Senators up for re-election who voted against the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh were Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Bill Nelson (D-FL), Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Jon Tester (D-MT).
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser released the following statement:
“We congratulate Justice Kavanaugh on his well-deserved and hard-earned confirmation. The balance of the Supreme Court has shifted back toward one that respects the will of the voters expressed through their representatives – a resounding victory for American people, who overwhelmingly trusted President Trump to choose Supreme Court nominees. As Justice Kavanaugh takes his seat on the bench of the nation’s highest court alongside Justice Neil Gorsuch, we are confident he will continue to rule with the same fairness and independence that have characterized his entire legal career. We thank President Trump for keeping his promise, as well as Leader McConnell and Chairman Grassley for their steadfast commitment to the truth and support for Kavanaugh.
“Senate Democrats should be ashamed of exploiting human pain and the serious issue of sexual assault for a partisan political agenda. Only one vulnerable incumbent, Joe Manchin, stood up to Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and other pro-abortion party leaders while Joe Donnelly, Bill Nelson, Claire McCaskill, Heidi Heitkamp, and Jon Tester caved under pressure. Anyone who thinks the voters will forget this profound betrayal is greatly mistaken. Since July of last year, SBA List’s field team has reached more than 2 million voters at their homes in key battleground states and will be on the ground every day through Election Day. A majority of voters in these states have told our canvassers they support Judge Kavanaugh. Americans saw through the vilification of an exceptionally qualified nominee and their senators will be held accountable.”
Susan B. Anthony List and the Pro-life Court Coalition made more than 30 stops across 7 states in the last two months rallying grassroots support for Judge Kavanaugh and urging Senate Democrats to vote to confirm him to the Supreme Court.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, visiting more than 1.1 million homes in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 690,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
