Evan Jenkins Votes For Massive Spending Bill that Funds Planned Parenthood and Sanctuary Cities

Washington, D.C. – In further proof that Evan Jenkins cannot be trusted to defend West Virginia’s conservative values, Jenkins voted today for a $1.3 trillion, 2,232-page omnibus spending bill that empowers gun grabbers, is soft on illegal immigration, funds Planned Parenthood, and wastes billions of dollars in pork barrel spending (RC #127, 03/22/18).

Some highlights of the omnibus include:

  • The omnibus funds the CDC to research and validate the gun grabbers‘ anti-gun agenda
  • The omnibus severely underfunds efforts to build a southern border wall and contains language severely restricting that effort
  • The omnibus continues to fund dangerous sanctuary cities that protect criminals
  • The omnibus funds grants that will go to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood
  • The omnibus does nothing to offer Americans reprieve from the crushing costs of Obamacare
  • The omnibus contains billions of dollars in pork barrel spending

“While Evan Jenkins calls himself ‘conservative,’ he clearly hasn’t abandoned his Democratic, liberal past,” Republican U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Morrisey said. “Evan Jenkins caved to Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and the liberal special-interests, and basically threw West Virginians under the bus. As West Virginia’s next senator, I will never cave to the liberal mafia. I will stand strong for our gun rights, our taxpayer dollars, our national security, and unborn life.”
