RICHMOND, VA – Americans for Prosperity-Virginia (AFP-VA) supports the Trump Administration’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia with bipartisan support.
Americans for Prosperity-Virginia State Director JC Hernandez issued the following statement:
“We fully support the Trump Administration’s nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to fill Justice Kennedy’s seat. The President has kept his promise to nominate jurists who will interpret the Constitution as written and not legislate from the bench. We hope the Senate will put partisan politics aside and vote to confirm this exceedingly qualified jurist to our nation’s highest court.”
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. 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.
AFP-VA will activate activists in the coming weeks to educate fellow Virginians about the proper role of the courts and the importance of confirming jurists who will interpret the Constitution as written.
