THE NEW YORK YOUNG REPUBLICAN CLUB, INC.
OPPOSES SENATE FILIBUSTER OF JUDGE SAMUEL ALITO


(New York, NY) The New York Young Republican Club, Inc. (NYYRC) denounces Senator Kerry’s threat for a filibuster and urges New York Senators Schumer and Clinton to allow the vote to proceed.

Judge Alito has received public support from many Republican Senators, as well as several Democrats. NYYRC President Dennis Cariello remarked, “It is clear that Judge Alito will be confirmed if the vote is allowed to come to the Senate floor. Even if Senators Clinton and Schumer are not going to vote yes for Judge Alito, though I believe that with Alito’s credentials there is no reason they should not, they at least need to respect Judge Alito’s right to a fair and timely vote.”

The New York Young Republican Club implores Senators Clinton and Schumer not to stand in the way of the legislative process and to discourage their colleagues from initiating a filibuster. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), came out in opposition to the filibuster, "because we have such a full plate of pressing issues before Congress, a filibuster at this time would be, in my view, very counterproductive.”

Cariello commented, “Senator Landrieu makes an excellent point. I call on Senators Clinton and Schumer to make similar statements to that effect, to compel their colleagues to allow the vote without filibuster. Senators Kerry and Kennedy need to stop their grandstanding, so that the Senate to can confirm Judge Alito without delay and move on to other important matters.”

The New York Young Republican Club, Inc., is a not-for-profit political organization that exists to bring Republicans aged 18-40 together to discuss the Republican Party platform and aid the Republican in the education of the public about the Republican agenda and the promotion of Republican candidates for office.
