@C-SPAN: Asked for comment, Senator Clay's office states,

@C-SPAN (1) "Senator Donnelly's speech is the textbook definition of partisanship. They wouldn't be complaining about ideology if she weren't fit for the office by every other standard,"

@C-SPAN: (2)  "It's ridiculous to slow her confirmation over it. Supreme Court Justices shouldn't be picked for their ideology, they should be picked for their qualifications to do the job."
