AFP-WV Responds to POTUS Event in Charleston

Aug 21, 2018 by AFP

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Americans for Prosperity-West Virginia (AFP-WV) released a statement in response to President Trump’s comments urging Senator Joe Manchin to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

“The President is absolutely right—Senator Manchin needs to do the right thing by West Virginia and announce his support for eminently qualified Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” said AFP-WV State Director Jason Huffman.  “As our strong West Virginia coalition—and now the President—has been saying for weeks, Sen. Manchin’s endorsement of Judge Kavanaugh, an outstanding jurist who will undoubtedly defend the Constitution, is what best represents Mountaineers,” Huffman added.

Background:

In early July, Americans for Prosperity announced it would commit seven figures to support Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court because of his sterling qualifications and long track-record of interpreting the laws as written and not legislating from the bench. Shortly following Kavanaugh’s nomination, AFP deployed door and phone scripts to all 36 state chapters and launched a digital and mail campaign urging Senators to support him.

In just over a month, AFP reached out to more than one million Americans to discuss and urge support for Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. AFP activists have also sent nearly 70,000 letters to specific senators and have made nearly 25,000 calls into Senate offices to express their support for Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

AFP-WV has released several statements on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation:
