More Than 100 Conservative Leaders Have Signed On To A Letter delivered To Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mcconnell (R-k) Urging Him To Use The Remaining Days Of The 115th Congress To Confirm President Donald Trump’s More Than 200 Executive And Judicial Nominees.
Following the retention of a Republican majority in the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, the Conservative Action Project (CAP) launched the letter campaign and said lawmakers should work “around the clock” if necessary to put Trump’s picks in the executive branch and federal courts into place.
