Dear Potential Presidential Candidate,
As leaders of active Iowa organizations,
we wholeheartedly support President Bush’s nomination of Judge Samuel Alito
to the United States Supreme Court.
Judge Alito is a highly qualified nominee.
As a judge on the United States 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, a former
U.S. Attorney and former employee of the United States Solicitor General
and Attorney General, Alito has a proven and sound record.
It is the judiciary’s responsibility to interpret
law and uphold the Constitution. Judge Alito’s record shows he clearly
understands and adheres to this constitutional concept.
In your constitutional role of advising and
consenting on this nomination the undersigned organizations expect you
to diligently review the nomination, conduct fair and respectful hearings,
and swiftly vote. It is our hope that through this process you too
will recognize Judge Alito’s impeccable qualifications and vote to confirm.
Our organizations are comprised of very knowledgeable
and active members. Please know that we have communicated with our constituents
regarding this nomination and will continue to keep our statewide members
informed of your stance on this important nomination.
