“They lost three red-state Democrats last year on the Gorsuch vote, and several more 2018ers will be feeling the heat since their states voted for President Trump,” Rogers said. “Yes, Democrats are energized, but it’s mostly their far-left base—like the socialist who won in New York this week—and that’s not the path to victory for most vulnerable Democrats in 2018. Senators will have a clear choice: Vote for a nominee who will uphold the Constitution, or vote for the extreme liberal agenda.”

Elizabeth Warren Wants To Kill Right-to-Work

Critics say Sherman overlooks that being an exclusive representative isn’t the only way unions can organize. Member only unions aren’t obligated to represent nonmembers or anyone not paying dues or fees. The downside is they lose monopoly rights which block other labor groups from trying to organize established bargaining units.
“These Senators must value a campaign contribution much more than freedom and flexibility for workers across the country,” Jeremy Adler, communications director for the conservative nonprofit America Rising Squared, told InsideSources. “Sponsoring legislation that would force Americans to give more of their hard-earned money over to Big Labor proves that for these liberals, helping special interest donors is more important than creating jobs and increasing wages for constituents.”

Activists Call for End to Gridlock in Judicial Appointments
Washington Free Beacon | 9/7/17
“Early in his career, Justice Stras worked as a law clerk for Justice Thomas, one of the Supreme Court’s most conservative members. Justice Stras has described Justice Thomas as a mentor,” Franken said in a release. “I am concerned that a nominee nurtured by such an ideology would likely seek to impose it on the litigants before him.”
Jeremy Adler, a spokesman for America Rising Squared, said that Franken’s opposition rang of hypocrisy in light of his past statements saying that “highly qualified people” should be confirmed to federal judicial posts without delay. Stras, like Barrett and Larsen, also received a “well qualified” rating from the ABA.
“For someone who slammed ‘procedural tactics’ [for] obstructing ‘highly qualified people’ from serving on the federal bench, Al Franken should be ashamed of his hypocrisy,” Adler said in a statement. “Unfortunately, Sen. Franken prioritizes the interests of activist liberals above advancing the nomination of a qualified Minnesotan.”
