Washington—Tonight, President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. Like Justice Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh comes from the president’s 2016 campaign shortlist of highly-qualified Supreme Court nominees and possesses a strong track record of faithfully upholding the Constitution as originally written.
Heritage Action released the following statement from Executive Director Tim Chapman:
I applaud President Trump for fulfilling yet another campaign promise to nominate a Supreme Court Justice in the mold of Justices Scalia and Gorsuch who will impartially uphold the law and the Constitution as written. Brett Kavanaugh is a judge who will, based on his record, not legislate from the bench, but instead faithfully interpret the law, honor the separation of powers, and uphold and protect individual rights spelled out in the Constitution.
Heritage Action looks forward to working with the U.S. Senate to carry out its ‘Advise and Consent’ role and confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
