AFP-FL Applauds Nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to Supreme Court and Urges a Swift Confirmation

Jul 9, 2018 by AFP

Grassroots group pledges support for nominee, looks to mobilize activists to aid in a swift approval

Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL) released a statement Monday applauding President Trump for nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States and urged his swift confirmation. AFP has pledged seven-figures in advertisement and grassroots engagement to mobilize activists in support of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, who would replace the recently retired justice, Anthony M. Kennedy.

“We commend President Trump for nominating Judge Kavanaugh and keeping his promise to select a jurist with a sterling record of judicial restraint and a commitment to the Constitution, both of which are vital to serving on the highest court.”

“Sen. Nelson put politics above country when he stated before a nominee was even announced that he was likely to oppose the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh. But Judge Kavanaugh’s record deserves his consideration and support. Floridians deserve Senators with objectivity during this process – Senators who will assess the nominee based on his interpretation of the Constitution, instead of coming to a pre-determined conclusion based on D.C. politics. We urge Sen. Nelson to support Judge Kavanaugh and put Floridians over politics.”

Background:

Americans for Prosperity will commit seven-figures to paid advertising and grassroots engagement in support of Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmation and utilize all of our grassroots tactics, which include door-to-door canvassing and phone banking. Florida will also send out the first round of mailers supporting Judge Kavanaugh in the coming weeks. Later this month, AFP will host events, tele-townhalls, and Facebook Live conversations with key lawmakers about the proper role of the courts and why it’s important to confirm jurists who interpret the law as written.

Brett Kavanaugh, a graduate of Yale Law School and former clerk to Justice Anthony Kennedy, received bipartisan support in 2006 for his confirmation to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. During his 12 years on the federal bench, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a commitment to the rule of law and is widely respected for his principled approach to interpreting the Constitution as written.
