Statement on Amy Coney Barrett’s Nomination

Today, September 26, President Trump nominated Judget Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court of the United States, replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Coney Barrett currently serves as a justice on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

“Filling a vacancy on the Supreme Court is one of the most important duties for a sitting president,” says Lois Anderson, ORTL executive director. “President Trump has made an excellent choice in Judge Amy Coney Barrett. She is an unquestionably well-qualified nominee for our highest court.”

“Instead of respecting her accomplishments, the mainstream media and special interests are attacking Judge Barrett’s personal beliefs, including her faith,” continued Anderson. “Today, I call on Oregonians to reject this kind of bigotry and support confirmation.”
