Tenn. Democratic Party derides appointment of 'far right partisan' to SCOTUS bench
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called Monday’s appointment of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court “a monumental moment in American history,” but not everyone agrees.
Blackburn was at the White House Monday night as Justice Clarence Thomas administered Barrett’s constitutional oath.
Just minutes after that ceremony, Tennessee’s Democratic Party Chair Mary Mancini fired off a press statement deriding Senator Blackburn for voting to help ram through “a far-right partisan justice through the Senate.
Mancini said she believes Barrett overturn Obamacare, abortion rights, and some voting rights.
