Unqualified. Extreme. For life?

In May, I talked about Ryan Bounds, part of Donald Trump​'s​ and Senate Republicans​' effort to pack into our federal courts with​ ​judges committed to rigging our economy and democracy for the wealthy and powerful.

Despite the objections of both Senator Ron Wyden and myself, Mr. Bounds' nomination is up for a vote this week. This would be the first time in over a century that the Senate ​​​confirms a judge over the objections of both home-state senators.

This is yet another reason we must win back the Senate in November. Extreme ideologues like Mr. Bounds have no place being put in positions of such power – for life.

Donate today. Let's build a blue wave to take back Congress and our country.
