SHELBY STATEMENT ON SPECTER COMMENTS

U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) made the following statement regarding comments made by Senator Specter and judicial nominees:

Senator Shelby said, “I am concerned about the implication of Senator Specter’s earlier comments regarding judicial nominees. I remain committed to supporting judicial nominees that share a conservative philosophy and value the sanctity of human life. I believe it is essential that the President appoint and the Senate confirm judicial nominees who are committed to upholding their role of interpreting and applying the Constitution rather than rewriting it.”
