AFP-KY Statement on the Senate Confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett

Oct 26, 2020 by AFP

Louisville, Ky. – Americans for Prosperity-Kentucky (AFP-KY) congratulated Judge Amy Coney Barrett on her confirmation by the Senate to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court and commended its grassroots activists for their incredible work to ensure Judge Barrett’s confirmation. Since the launch of AFP’s full scale campaign, which began just minutes after Judge Barrett’s nomination by President Trump on Sep. 26th, AFP grassroots activists have made and sent more than 750,000 –  three quarters of a million – phone calls and letters to their senators urging them to confirm Judge Barrett to the high court. AFP will now launch a campaign, which includes digital and newspaper ads, to thank Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Rand Paul, and other senators for voting to confirm Judge Barrett.

AFP-KY State Director Michael Conway issued the following statement:

“Congratulations to Judge Amy Coney Barrett. All Kentuckians will benefit from having her as a Justice on the Supreme Court. We commend Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his leadership during Judge Barrett’s confirmation process, and Sen. Rand Paul for voting to confirm her. We thank our activists for their tireless work to ensure we have a Supreme Court that will uphold the Constitution, interpret the law as written, and protect our freedoms.”

More on AFP’s Campaign to Confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett:

Americans for Prosperity launched a full-scale national campaign to mobilize its permanent grassroots infrastructure and empower its activists to support Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the high court.

The national campaign, which focused on Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia, launched just minutes after President Trump nominated Judge Barrett on Sep. 26 and included a robust mix of targeted direct-mail, layered digital ads, and other tactics to supplement activists’ efforts across the country.

AFP also set up a unique UniteForBarrett.com web page that empowered activists to share their support of Judge Barrett with their senators, and the group’s state leaders have taken the conversation directly to the grassroots by talking to members of their communities, writing op-eds in local newspapers, and hitting the airwaves. The group has also hosted 10 live videoconferences for the grassroots to hear directly from their senators and state attorneys general, and spearheaded a coalition letter of more than 200 leaders from national and state groups urging senators to confirm Judge Barrett.

AFP activists sent or made more than 750,000 letters and phone calls to their senators urging them to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
