Iowa Conservatives for Fairness

November 11, 2005

Dear Potential Presidential Candidate,

As leaders of active Iowa organizations, we wholeheartedly support President Bush’s nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the United States Supreme Court.

Judge Alito is a highly qualified nominee.  As a judge on the United States 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, a former U.S. Attorney and former employee of the United States Solicitor General and Attorney General, Alito has a proven and sound record.

It is the judiciary’s responsibility to interpret law and uphold the Constitution.  Judge Alito’s record shows he clearly understands and adheres to this constitutional concept.

In your constitutional role of advising and consenting on this nomination the undersigned organizations expect you to diligently review the nomination, conduct fair and respectful hearings, and swiftly vote.  It is our hope that through this process you too will recognize Judge Alito’s impeccable qualifications and vote to confirm.

Our organizations are comprised of very knowledgeable and active members. Please know that we have communicated with our constituents regarding this nomination and will continue to keep our statewide members informed of your stance on this important nomination.
