"We hope conservatives in Florida and elsewhere will rally behind Rubio and ensure that the Senate stays out of Democrat hands. He is a young and energetic conservative leader who understands that regulatory reform and spending reform are necessary to help restore prosperity in America," says FreedomWorks PAC Chairman Adam Brandon.
"When Republican senators meet with President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, they are playing right into the hands of the White House and advancing President Obama's goal of getting a hearing," said FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon. "With a few exceptions, Senate Republicans came out strongly against the idea of an election-year confirmation to the Supreme Court. Most took it a step further by saying that they didn't see the point of even meeting with a nominee. Now, some are changing their tune. By foolishly agreeing to meet with Obama's nominee, Republicans are playing with fire, and they can't blame the conservative grass roots when they get burned."
