“NO” on CLOTURE on Nomination of Jack McConnell
Today, the Senate will vote to invoke cloture on the nomination of Jack McConnell to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island. A prominent plaintiffs’ attorney, Mr. McConnell has acknowledged his preference for an activist judiciary and demonstrated he is incapable of approaching legal issues in a fair and impartial manner. Among many additional concerns, he also provided misleading answers to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Heritage Action opposes the nomination of Jack McConnell and will include the vote on cloture as a key vote in our scorecard.
