Rep. LaHood's Statement on the Nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court

July 9, 2018
Press Release

The President’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court reaffirms that our Constitution will be strongly upheld within our nation’s highest court. With more than 300 published opinions, Judge Kavanaugh has become a thought-leader among his peers on the appellate courts and deeply respected by the Supreme Court. Having known him and his family personally and witnessing his proven track record, I am excited to have his measured perspective added to the bench. I certainly hope that the Senate moves quickly and decisively to confirm him, as I have every confidence that Judge Kavanaugh will continue to serve our nation faithfully and maintain the honor and dignity of the Supreme Court.
