Toomey Issues Statement on the Nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court
Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement regarding President Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States:
"I was pleased to see President Trump nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to a seat on the Supreme Court of the United States. Based on his reputation and resume, Judge Kavanaugh appears to have the intellect and experience necessary to serve on our nation's highest court.
"Judicial nominees, including those for the Supreme Court, should understand that the proper role of a judge is to apply the law, including the U.S. Constitution, as written. I plan to apply this standard while reviewing Judge Kavanaugh's record and I hope my colleagues will do the same so that Republicans and Democrats can work together to confirm highly qualified jurists. Considering a Supreme Court nominee is one of the greatest responsibilities a Senator has and I look forward to following the Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearing and meeting Judge Kavanaugh in person soon."
