To the editor:
Americans have been very clear — they’re sick of the kind of dirty politics that Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family were forced to endure during the last confirmation of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice and demand better in the upcoming confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
I’m proud of U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, who has committed to giving Judge Barrett a fair hearing. It’s her duty as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee to give the appropriate consideration to any justice who is nominated to fill a vacancy.
It’s clear that Ernst takes this role seriously, and I appreciate the fact that she has stood up to the mob mentality of those on the left and given Barrett the chance to come before the committee and be vetted.
Barrett’s qualifications are vast and appropriate. Her work as a well-respected judge, a brilliant legal scholar, professor at one of the nation’s most prestigious universities and her appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution make it clear that she should be confirmed.
Thank you, Sen. Ernst, for your leadership for Iowa and for doing your job.
