2020 Recent Vote
The Senate considered President Trump’s nomination of Andrew Brasher to be U.S. Circuit Court judge for the Eleventh Circuit. Circuit courts are often the ultimate arbiters of highly significant cases, including those involving environmental protections, and it is critical that the judges confirmed to serve lifetime appointments on these courts are qualified, non-partisan, and committed to treating parties fairly. As Alabama Solicitor General, Brasher repeatedly attacked fundamental environmental protections and promoted restrictions on voting rights, falsely arguing that the racist voter suppression efforts have “faded away.” On February 11, the Senate confirmed Brasher to the Eleventh Circuit by a vote of 52-43 (Senate roll call vote 36). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
