Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Ann Schockett, President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), sent congratulations and praise to Amy Coney Barrett who has been confirmed and sworn in to become the newest associate justice of the United States Supreme Court.
“Justice Amy Coney Barrett is an invaluable addition to our nation’s highest court. Throughout her illustrious career, she has faithfully upheld the U.S. Constitution as written. She made it clear during the arduous hearings through to her acceptance remarks that she will decide cases based on written law and not allow personal preference and politics to interfere,” Schockett said. “Justice Barrett is eminently respected across the legal profession as a brilliant jurist, a notable scholar and remarkable intellect. Greatly admired as a role model and as a modern day feminist to women across the nation and the globe, she has shown the greatest devotion to her family demonstrating how women can have a successful career while being fully engaged as a wife and mother.”
“From Day 1 of Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination, I was proud to lead the successful efforts of dedicated NFRW volunteers from across the country to actively support this remarkable Justice. Our NFRWarriors’ ‘Amy Army’ Rapid Response Team spearheaded multiple campaigns including on the ground in D.C., in the media and social media and through a petition to our U.S. Senators signed by thousands of our members. I thank Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican Senators who persisted in fulfilling their constitutional duties to advise and consent on judicial nominations as laid out in the Constitution,” Schockett continued. “The Democrats did their best to derail this outstanding nominee. Their attacks did not stick on either Justice Barrett’s qualifications or her character.”
