AFP-MI Applauds the Trump Administration on the Nomination of Judge Kavanaugh and Urges a Swift Confirmation

Jul 9, 2018 by AFP

Lansing, MI –Americans for Prosperity-MI applauds President Trump’s nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court of the United States.  AFP-MI will commit its full resources and permanent grassroots infrastructure to his confirmation.

Americans for Prosperity – Michigan State Director Pete Lund issued the following statement:

“President Trump promised to nominate a Supreme Court Justice who would interpret the law, defend the Constitution, and not legislate from the bench. In nominating Judge Kavanaugh, he has upheld that promise. Judge Kavanaugh has outstanding qualifications, a temperament in the mold of Justice Neil Gorsuch, and the judicial restraint required to serve on the highest court. Judge Kavanaugh understands that it is the role of the Supreme Court to interpret the law as written rather than drive a political agenda. AFP-MI urges Senator Stabenow and Senator Peters to swiftly confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”

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.

Additional background on national Americans for Prosperity efforts:

Americans for Prosperity will commit seven-figures to paid advertising and grassroots engagement in support of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Grassroots activities include doorknocking and phone educational materials have been deployed to each of the 36 AFP state chapters. Additionally, an initial round of mail and door hangers will be delivered to residents soon in West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Florida, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Montana, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.  Later this month, AFP will host events, tele-townhalls, and Facebook live conversations with key lawmakers about the proper role of courts and the importance of confirming jurists who interpret the law as written.
