Echoes Of Thomas Jefferson

October 2, 2018

This morning Senator Chris Coons told reporters that a Democratic-majority Senate could confirm a Trump Supreme Court pick from the ranks of conservative circuit court judges — but someone on the Federalist Society list probably would go nowhere.

Coons added that, “It’s a really significant statement that the cooling saucer of the Senate can still, though cracked, perform those functions.”

He also opined about his future and that of the nation.

He spoke of a conversation with his wife last week about running for re-election in 2020.

“I’ll just be blunt: Is this really worth our time? ‘I don’t know if this is a good investment, but I know this: If the Senate doesn’t work, our Constitution, our republic, our nation doesn’t work. I cannot abandon this post.'” he added that “the politics of my party are beginning to resemble the politics of the other party in ways that concern me.”
