More than 100 conservative leaders have signed on to a letter delivered to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-K) urging him to use the remaining days of the 115th Congress to confirm President Donald Trump’s more than 200 executive and judicial nominees.
“With this in mind, we ask you to keep the Senate in session to confirm all pending conservative executive and judicial nominations before adjourning for the year — around the clock, including nights and weekends if necessary,” the letter said.
“From the courts to the agencies, President Trump needs nominees committed to his stated policy goals,” the letter said.
“For this reason, we ask the Senate to work around the clock to confirm conservative nominees before leaving in December.”
The list of those signing onto the CAP’s letter reads like the who’s who in the conservative movement, including Ed Meese, attorney general for President Ronald Reagan; Alfred S. Regnery, chairman of CAP and the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund; Jenny Beth Martin, chairman of the Tea Party Patriots Citizen Fund; Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List; Tom McClusky, president of March for Life Action; Kenneth Blackwell, chairman of Constitutional Congress, Inc.; Penny Nance, president and CEO of Concerned Women for America; Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council and the Council for National Policy; Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles; Kelly Shackelford, president and CEO of First Liberty Institute; and Star Parker, president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE).
