The LAGOP Thanks Commissioner Mike Strain for His Steadfast Support for Judge Amy Coney Barrett

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 21, 2020



(Baton Rouge, LA) – The Republican Party of Louisiana would like to sincerely thank Commissioner of the Department of Agriculture and Forestry Mike Strain for his leadership in encouraging the Senate to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court.


Our Commissioner wrote a letter signed by nine other agricultural commissioners to Senate leaders of both parties, wherein he points out the obvious- that Judge Barrett is extremely well qualified and President Trump made the right choice in nominating her. Furthermore, the President was acting well within his rights to make the nomination when he did, because he was elected to serve FOUR full years, not three and a half.


Commissioner Strain said it best: “...she will contribute greatly to the court's jurisprudence in the years and decades to come and will help guide America back to the ideals envisioned by our founding fathers."


We appreciate the Commissioner's support of this outstanding nominee, and we join him in urging the Senate to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett.


We have attached the full letter below.
