WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today spoke on the Senate floor in support of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee to be the next Supreme Court justice, and highlighted the numerous reasons Kavanaugh is well-qualified to fill the current vacancy.
“When I consider nominees for the Supreme Court, I don’t look for a person who promises a particular policy outcome or someone who is out to actually create laws. What I look for is a person whose record reflects experience, fairness, and respect for the Constitution as it is written,” Senator Capito said. “President Trump made clear in his campaign that he would appoint judges with respect for the Constitution. I believe he kept his commitment when he nominated Brett Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court justice.”
