Oct 26, 2020 by AFP

COLUMBIA, SC – Americans for Prosperity-South Carolina (AFP-SC) today commended Senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott for confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

Since the launch of AFP’s national, full-scale campaign, which began shortly after Judge Barrett’s nomination on Sep. 26th, AFP grassroots activists sent or made more than 750,000 letters and phone calls respectively to their senators in support of Judge Barrett.

AFP-SC State Director Andrew Yates issued the following statement:

“We commend Senator Lindsey Graham for conducting a professional and thorough hearing for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. South Carolinians saw Judge Barrett’s impressive knowledge and understanding of the law over the course of her hearing, in addition to her commitment to follow the Constitution and to not legislate from the bench. Our activists outspokenly supported Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court, and we thank Senators Graham and Scott for listening to their constituents and voting for this exceptional nominee.”

Background:

Americans for Prosperity launched a full-scale national campaign, with South Carolina as one if its target states, to mobilize its permanent grassroots infrastructure and empower its activists to support Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the high court.

As part of its campaign, AFP set up a unique web page, UniteforBarrett.com, that empowered activists to share their support of Judge Barrett with their senators. The campaign also included over two million pieces of mail sent across the country and millions of Americans were reached via the group’s targeted digital ads.

The group has also hosted several live videoconferences for the grassroots to hear directly from their senators and spearheaded a coalition letter of more than 200 leaders from national and state groups urging senators to confirm Judge Barrett.
