Constitutionalists Elated By Bush's Pick
(Falls Church, VA.) Eugene Delgaudio, President of Public Advocate of the U.S. issued a statement on the Alito nomination today:
"This is a great day for Democracy in America. Samuel Alito is a highly qualified nominee. He is a proven originalist who respects the Constitution and will help restore judicial restraint to the Court.
"Although we opposed the Roberts and Miers nominations, we will fight vigorously for Judge Alito.
"We thank President Bush for this principled nomination.
"We welcome President Bush with open arms back to the conservative movement."
Public Advocate was the first group to oppose the Miers nomination and one of the few conservative groups to oppose the Roberts nomination to the supreme court.
