Senator David Perdue Comments On President Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee

WASHINGTON, D.C. – After attending the nomination ceremony at the White House, U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court: 

“President Trump has again fulfilled his promise to the American people and put forward an outstanding nominee to serve on the United States Supreme Court. Throughout his remarkable legal career, Brett Kavanaugh has shown a commitment to upholding our country’s Constitution. These principles are the bedrock of our nation and have made the United States exceptional since its founding.

“Judge Kavanaugh has an impressive academic and legal background. He graduated from Yale Law School, clerked for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, served as staff secretary for President George W. Bush, and served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for more than a decade. Judge Kavanaugh understands the long-lasting impact Supreme Court decisions have on our nation, and I look forward to meeting with him soon.”
