Politico: Senate Dems squeeze GOP on health care with Trump judicial nominee

03.05.19

 

Senate Democrats are looking to pressure the GOP on a key judicial nominee, warning a Tuesday vote amounts to a test of Senate Republicans’ commitment to protecting health care for individuals with pre-existing conditions.
Chad Readler, who President Donald Trump nominated to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, has come under fire from Democrats for signing a brief during his time at the Trump Justice Department that supported a lawsuit challenging the Affordable Care Act.
…Liberal judicial groups are also pressuring Republicans on the Readler nomination.

Demand Justice said Tuesday that it has purchased a five-figure digital ad buy targeting Republican senators in swing states, including Collins, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Cory Gardner of Colorado, and Joni Ernst of Iowa.
