ALG Praises Senate Republicans for Rejecting Cloture on D.C. Circuit Nominee Halligan

Dec. 6, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today in a statement praised Senate Republicans for rejecting a cloture motion on D.C. Circuit Court nominee Caitlin Halligan:

"Senate Republicans have done the right thing by blocking a radical, unqualified ideologue, Caitlin Halligan, from taking a seat on the federal bench.  Along with Goodwin Liu, Halligan's nomination marked a move by the Obama White House to reshape the federal judiciary into a cabal of leftists.  Americans everywhere urge the Senate and Senate Republicans to maintain this stand against Obama's takeover of the judiciary."
