Highlights:

Accomplished Jurist: “Judge Kavanaugh is an accomplished, experienced jurist with over 300 published opinions. More than 50 Circuit Court opinions cite one of his concurrences or dissents, and the Supreme Court has actually endorsed his opinions more than a dozen times.”

Years Of Service: “Judge Kavanaugh has dedicated his life to public service, serving in various roles in the executive branch under President George W. Bush and for the last 12 years on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.” 

Positive Impact: “Just last week, one of Judge Kavanaugh’s earliest clerks was sworn in to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. That judge is Judge Britt Grant, a native Georgian. Judge Grant clerked for Judge Kavanaugh, served on Georgia’s Supreme Court and was elected to a full term without opposition. She is now a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals. Judge Kavanaugh introduced her when she was sworn in to the Georgia Supreme Court, and he swore her into the Court of Appeals last week. Judge Grant and Judge Kavanaugh are where they are today because of their years of service and work to uphold the U.S. Constitution.”

Blind Partisanship: “Even with Judge Kavanaugh’s outstanding qualifications that transcend party lines, some of my colleagues across the aisle are already hysterically opposing him. In fact, some of my colleagues promised to vote against the nominee before Judge Kavanaugh had even officially been nominated. That kind of blind partisanship is exactly what the American people find unacceptable about Washington." 

Confirm Judge Kavanaugh: “I give Judge Kavanaugh my fullest, unreserved recommendation, and I encourage my colleagues to vote for his confirmation.”
