Tillis, Senate Republicans Send Unified Message Against Democrats’ Court-Packing Threat

Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, D.C.     Recently, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) joined Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and all 51 Senate Republicans in sending a letter to the Supreme Court of the United States condemning Democrats' recent threats to pack the Supreme Court. Full text of the letter can be found below and HERE.

    "Democrats in Congress, and on the presidential campaign trail, have peddled plans to pack this Court with more justices in order to further their radical legislative agenda," the senators wrote. "Our constitutional republic depends on an independent judiciary ruling impartially on the basis of what the law says. We ask that the Justices stand firm and do their part to protect our "government of laws, not of men."

    "For our part, we promise this: While we remain Members of this body, the Democrats' threat to "restructure[ ]" the Court is an empty one," the senators continued. "We share Justice Ginsburg's view that "nine seems to be a good number." And it will remain that way as long as we are here."
