Josh Hawley Comments on Selection of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court
COLUMBIA, Mo. – Josh Hawley, Missouri Attorney General, member of the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, and former Supreme Court Clerk, issued the following statement on President Trump naming Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the next Supreme Court nomination:
“Judge Kavanaugh is a remarkably qualified nominee for the Supreme Court. I have full confidence he will uphold the Constitution as the people wrote it, not impose his values from the bench. And that’s what the people deserve. The balance of the court turns on this nomination and I applaud the President for his thoughtfulness on this decision.
“Unfortunately, the deciding vote may well rest with Senator Claire McCaskill – who has been wrong on Supreme Court nominees every single time. She supports liberal activists, voted for every single judicial nomination under President Obama, and opposed Justice Neil Gorsuch. She refuses to abandon Chuck Schumer and her left-wing allies, and we can expect this time to be no different. Missourians deserve a Senator who will fight for our way of life and support a constitutional conservative like Judge Kavanaugh.”
