Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Jr. (D. PA) on behalf of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party:
Every day in the United States Senate, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump are trying to stack the federal courts with far-right judges serving corporate special interests.
Rather than work across the aisle to appoint independent voices, they insist on ramming through corporate judges like Brett Kavanaugh. The result is a federal court system that increasingly serves the Republican Party’s corporate donors, not the American people.
That’s why it is more important than ever that Pennsylvanians stand up to balance our courts at the state level, and it’s why I endorse Amanda Green-Hawkins and Judge Dan McCaffery for PA Superior Court.
Amanda and Dan are the type of mainstream, independent judges we can trust to keep the doors of justice open to all. I believe they’ll serve Pennsylvanians with experience, integrity, and independence, ensuring that everyone has equal justice under law.
As President Trump and Leader McConnell pack the federal courts, electing state judges like Dan and Amanda will help balance the scales of justice and send a clear signal that our courts aren’t for sale.
Senator Bob Casey
