WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) met with Judge Brett Kavanaugh and released the following statement in support of his nomination to serve on the Supreme Court:
“The first thing that stood out when Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination was announced was his exceptional record on the bench and the high level of respect his peers hold for him. After having an opportunity to visit with him, I find Judge Kavanaugh to be even more impressive than his resume and reputation alone suggest. I am confident that he is a fair and thoughtful jurist who will respect the Constitution and refrain from legislating from the bench. He is the exact type of judge we need on the Supreme Court.
I encourage my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to spend some time with Judge Kavanaugh and discuss any concerns they may have with him, rather than spend all their energy attempting to stall and obstruct the confirmation process of this highly-qualified candidate for the Court.”
