Becerra confirmation would mean left-wing "culture wars," GOP senators say

“Xavier Becerra isn’t an experienced consensus leader, he’s a culture war super-soldier with a long history of attacking First Amendment freedoms,” Nebraska Republican Ben Sasse said.

“Culture wars are poison to self-government, especially during a real public health crisis. The Senate should reject his divisive nomination,” he said…

“He’ll be able to put his fingerprints on healthcare policy administratively in a way that concerns so many of us here in the Senate,” said Republican Sen. Steve Daines of Montana. “In looking at his record as a culture warrior… he’s aggressively pursued a pro-abortion agenda, even when that’s crossed the line on protecting religious freedom.”
