Vote for Kavanaugh!
Sep 19, 2018
The Constitution clearly defines the role of the U.S. Supreme Court. The President simply could not have nominated anyone more qualified to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy’s U.S. Supreme Court seat than Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh showed his true character this past week with his demeanor and reaction to the protestors opposing his confirmation. Kavanaugh has an impeccable legal background, sterling academic credentials, and great integrity.
Kavanaugh has devoted 25 years to serving the American people in a number of positions, most notably as associate independent counsel, associate White House counsel, assistant and staff secretary to former President George W. Bush, and currently as a judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. He is dedicated to upholding the rule of law and will be a strong voice on the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh also is a community-oriented family person who remains active in his church, volunteers to help disadvantaged families, coaches his daughter’s basketball team, and tutors children at local schools. He has an exemplary judiciary temperament that the founding fathers would have taken great pride in, and he is exactly the kind of person Americans can trust to interpret the Constitution based on the letter of the law, and protect the rights of all Americans.
Kavanaugh is the exact type of constitutional jurist Trump promised to nominate. Promises made, promises kept.
