Oct 26, 2020 by AFP

PHOENIX, AZ —Americans for Prosperity-Arizona (AFP-AZ) today congratulated Judge Amy Coney Barrett on her confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court. Commending its grassroots activists for their tireless work to ensure Judge Barrett’s confirmation, AFP-AZ joined the full-scale nationwide campaign to encourage Senators McSally and Sinema to vote “yes.” Following the confirmation, AFP-AZ will now launch newspaper and digital advertisements thanking Senator McSally for her vote in support of Barrett.


AFP-AZ State Director Stephen Shadegg issued the following statement:


“Our activists are excited to see their hard-work pay off and Judge Amy Coney Barrett confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. A strong constitutionalist and an independent-minded jurist, Judge Barrett will be a welcomed addition to the high court who  will not legislate from the bench. We applaud Senator McSally for voting to confirm Judge Barrett and urge her and Senator Sinema to support future constitutionalists.”




AFP-AZ Joins Nationwide Full Scale 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 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 several 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.
