The Senate on Wednesday confirmed one of President Trump’s judicial nominees, who has faced mounting criticism from Democrats over his past writings on the LGBT community.
It's unbelievable that during #PrideMonth, Republicans have decided to vote on the nomination of Matthew Kacsmaryk for a lifetime position to the federal bench. Kacsmaryk has filed briefs opposing marriage equality and defending anti-transgender bathroom policies. I'm voting NO.

"Matthew’s confirmation is further evidence that presidential appointees who adhere to the text of the Constitution and the Founders’ original intent for our most fundamental freedoms, including religious liberty, can and will be confirmed by the U.S. Senate."- Kelly Shackelford pic.twitter.com/LuDTNT3ikd
