Perdue on Brett Kavanaugh

Transcript:

“Hi guys, it’s David Perdue, the Junior U.S. Senator from Georgia. It’s first thing in the morning on Tuesday, after last night’s historic evening where President Trump announced his nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court. I was invited to be there and was in the East Room of the White House as President Trump announced his choice as Brett Kavanaugh.

“Judge Kavanaugh has an outstanding career. I am excited by his nomination. This is the second nomination that President Trump has made for the United States Supreme Court. We all know, both Democrats and Republicans, what a great addition Neil Gorsuch was to the United States Supreme Court. I think Brett Kavanaugh is of the same ilk, and I think he will make the same sort of Justice – the type of Justice that supports and defends the Constitution of the United States.

“Last night, Judge Kavanaugh talked mostly about his family – his mom, his dad, his wife and kids. He talked about America. He committed to the President, and to us in the Senate, and to America, that his number one responsibility was to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. That’s good enough for me because his record proves that. I’m excited about his nomination, and I’m excited about meeting him in person in a one-on-one interview in the next week or so and to move to his confirmation hearing.

“Now, the other side will tell you all bad things about this individual, just like they did with Neil Gorsuch. I’m here to tell you, we need to take politics out of this equation. This is about the future of our country. This is about an individual with an outstanding, objective, and independent record of defending and upholding the Constitution of the United States. I could not be more excited about a nominee than I am about Brett Kavanaugh.”
