American Bridge Statement on National Emergency Disapproval Resolution

American Bridge released the following statement after Senators Tillis, Gardner, Perdue, McSally, and Ernst sided with President Trump to vote against the disapproval resolution blocking Trump’s national emergency. The resolution passed the Senate 59-41.

“It’s crystal clear that Republican Senators are more scared of a primary challenge than they are loyal to their principles or to their constituents,” said American Bridge spokesperson Amelia Penniman. “It’s another example in a long list of Republicans abandoning conservative principles in the interest of political power, and another reason they are wholly unfit to lead.”
