Demand Justice Statement on Anticipation of Amy Coney Barrett

WASHINGTON - Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon released the following statement following Donald Trump's announcement that he would nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court:

"Donald Trump and the Republicans are in such a rush to steal another Supreme Court seat that they aren't even waiting for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to be buried before putting forward a nominee. The country already opposes rushing a pick through so close to the election, but in selecting Amy Coney Barrett, Donald Trump has chosen the person most likely to turbocharge the intensity of the opposition to this whole process. Barrett's views may make her a darling of Trump's base, but they will also make clear to everyone else that nothing less than the survival of the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade are on the line in this fight. Senate Democrats need to be prepared to resist this pick at all costs."
