Jul 9, 2018 by AFP

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Americans for Prosperity-Utah (AFP-UT) 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-Utah State Director Heather Williamson issued the following statement:

“The President kept his promise to nominate jurists who will faithfully protect our fundamental freedoms. Judge Kavanaugh is eminently qualified to fill Justice Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court. His record shows that he will interpret the Constitution as written and will not legislate from the bench. AFP-Utah thanks Senators Hatch and Lee for supporting Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. We look forward to other Senators following their lead and ensuring a swift confirmation of 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. 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-UT will activate activists in the coming weeks to educate fellow Utahans about the proper role of the courts and the importance of confirming jurists who will interpret the Constitution as written.
