JAG Letter to Graham Supporting Judge Wilson
On behalf of our one hundred and fifty thousand supporters across all fifty states, Judicial Action Group strongly supports the confirmation of Judge Cory T. Wilson to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. For the reasons stated in this letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, we respectfully request that he and all Members of the Judiciary Committee vote in for Wilson's confirmation.
A judicial nominee should possess three non-negotiable characteristics. First, the nominee’s judicial philosophy must conform to the text of the Constitution. Second, the nominee’s philosophy should be manifestly evident from their record over a long period of time (not just in the immediate period before their nomination). Third, the nominee’s record should testify to their courage and unwillingness to compromise their judicial philosophy. Judge Cory T. Wilson possesses all three of these characteristics and, therefore, would be an excellent federal judge.
