I’m Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, joining me is Matt Barber, founder of, and Holly Meade, the Director of Communications for Liberty Counsel.

Mat Staver: Well, Governor Brownback is an exceptional person to be the Ambassador at Large promoting religious freedom around the world.

Unfortunately, Matt, not one Democrat — not one! Unbelievably! — voted to confirm this appointment. In fact, Vice President Mike Pence had to come in a cast the tie-breaking vote to ultimately confirm Brownback as this ambassador.
