I met with Richard Ellenberg, candidate 4 chair of DPNM, along with Sandy Martinez and Val Anaya, chair and vice- chair of Democratic Party of Socorro County. Very knowledgeable group of people!
Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court this morning. Republicans are rejoicing, but it is a hollow victory. In order to accomplish this, Mitch McConnell had to gut Senate rules. The process was so politicized that it mars the Court, which is supposed to be “above” partisan politics. By ramming through a hyper- right judge, who is much disliked by the Left, Republicans have proven that they are willing to create a political Court.
Also, in all of McConnell’s arguments against Democrats, he rarely, if ever, mentioned Merrick Garland, the centrist jurist who would have represented the LAW and not a segment of society.
Get MAD and vote blue.
Bernie Sanders delivers a statement on the “nuclear option” and what it means for the Left. Truly, it isn’t fair to change the rules in the middle of a game. Democrats would have supported a less extreme judge, but McConnell had to have THIS one. Shame on him.
Get MAD and vote blue!
