Statement on the Nomination of Judge Amy Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court

Raleigh, N.C. – North Carolina lawmakers, voters, and a Congressional candidate have filed a federal lawsuit to stop the the backroom elections deal struck by Democrats’ top D.C. attorney with his former client Gov. Roy Cooper and state Attorney General Josh Stein.

“North Carolinians appreciate President Trump’s nomination of an excellent jurist to the U.S. Supreme Court who will uphold the constitution’s vital protections for the American people, knowing from her record and scholarship that she can be trusted to side with the facts and the law on issues important to them,” Speaker Moore said in a statement.
“I look forward to supporting Judge Barrett through the confirmation process in the US. Senate.”
