DNC 2016: Delegates stress that Clinton should make Supreme Court nominations


PHILADELPHIA — California delegates have been vocal and active at the Democratic National Convention, and one Hillary Clinton supporter said there are many key issues that need to be seriously addressed.

Diana Carpenter Madoshi, who lives in the Sacramento area, said her main concern is the future makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court. She said the next president could be responsible for appointing as many as three new justices.

“We have to assure that Hillary Clinton is president to make those appointments,” she said. “This is a critical issue that’s at stake in this election.”

Clinton has said that she wants judges who will uphold Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion. She also has said she would appoint justices who would overturn the Citizens United decision that established free speech campaign rights for special interest groups.

Madoshi said the next president could transform the Supreme Court, and she wants Clinton to make the nominations.
