Capito Votes to Confirm Supreme Court Nominee Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today issued the following statement after voting to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court:

“I was proud to vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh as our newest Supreme Court justice today, and I have no doubt that he will serve fairly and judiciously. I have remained supportive of Judge Kavanaugh throughout the confirmation process because I believe that his exemplary record as a jurist, his respect for the Constitution and the rule of law, and his character and devotion to public service make him immensely qualified and deserving of this important responsibility. Given all of the facts that have been presented and the numerous conversations I’ve had with Judge Kavanaugh myself, I am firm in my belief that President Trump made the right choice in nominating him, and today’s vote was an important acknowledgment of that.”
