JEFFERSON CITY, MO (STL.News) Americans for Prosperity-Missouri (AFP-MO) today congratulated Judge Amy Coney Barrett on her confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court and commended its grassroots activists for their incredible work to ensure Judge Barrett’s confirmation. AFP-MO joined the full-scale campaign to encourage Senators Roy Blunt and Josh Hawley to support Judge Barrett throughout her confirmation process.
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-MO State Director Jeremy Cady issued the following statement:
“Judge Amy Coney Barrett is an exceptional addition to the U.S. Supreme Court who will serve Missouri well by applying the law as written and not legislating from the bench. We thank Senators Roy Blunt and Josh Hawley for their continued support of Judge Barrett and voting to confirm her to our highest court.”
AFP-MO Joins Nationwide, Full Scale Campaign to Confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett
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 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.
