Attorney Generals in Arkansas and Oklahoma praise Trump's Supreme Court selection
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter released the following statements on Friday concerning President Donald Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“President Trump has once again nominated an exceptional legal scholar to serve on the nation’s highest court and protect our Constitution. Judge Barrett has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit since 2017. Before that, she distinguished herself as a constitutional scholar during nearly two decades as a respected member of the faculty at her alma mater Notre Dame Law School after clerking for Justice Antonin Scalia. Judge Barrett has published many articles in leading law reviews throughout the country. She has done all this while raising seven children. Judge Barrett’s resume, experience and deeply held faith make her the perfect selection for our country. I look forward to working with President Trump and the U.S. Senate to assist with getting Judge Barrett confirmed.” - Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge
E"Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be an outstanding addition to the U.S. Supreme Court. Her experience speaks for itself, as she has clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia, written nearly 100 opinions, is a highly respected law professor at Notre Dame and has served on the Seventh Circuit with distinction. I applaud this nomination and look forward to her confirmation without delay." - Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunte
