DNC on Trump’s Failed Nomination of Thomas Farr

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:


“Thomas Farr has spent his professional life attacking the civil rights of African Americans. He doesn’t belong anywhere near the federal bench, and his nomination was yet another example of the lengths Republicans will go to silence communities of color.


“Unlike Thomas Farr and Republican leaders, Democrats believe diversity makes our democracy stronger. We believe every eligible voter should be able to make their voice heard. Today is a victory for everybody who organized, spoke out, and refused to accept bigotry on the bench. And we will keep fighting back against any Trump nominee who threatens the values of equality and justice for all.”
