WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) gave the following statement Monday after President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court.
“Judge Kavanaugh is a well-respected jurist who deservedly received bipartisan support when confirmed to the D.C. Circuit in 2006. I know him to be a smart and fair judge, one of the most admired appellate judges in the country. I look forward to the process in the Senate, getting to know Judge Kavanaugh and his family better in coming months, and, hopefully, voting to confirm him to the Supreme Court in the fall.”
