Boozman Statement on Confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Written by Press Release

October 6, 2018

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the United States Supreme Court:

“I voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice on our nation’s highest court. He is eminently qualified and has earned the respect of the legal community by virtue of his distinguished record on the bench. I am confident Judge Kavanaugh will continue to be the fair and thoughtful jurist he’s demonstrated himself to be over the past 12 years on the D.C. Circuit Court.

“The process by which Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination was considered in the Senate makes clear that this institution has been damaged considerably. This body has a constitutional duty to offer its advice and consent to the President of the United States on nominations to the federal judiciary. When that obligation is so overcome by partisanship and political gamesmanship––as this nomination has been––we must recognize how detrimental that is and commit to hold ourselves to a standard worthy of this institution and to the vision of the founders. Clearly, we have missed the mark in this instance.

“I remain hopeful that the Senate, and our country as a whole, can elevate our political discourse and actions in order to live up to the ideals that define us. One of those ideals is fidelity to the constitution and the rule of law. I look forward to Judge Kavanaugh’s tenure on the Supreme Court where I believe he will champion those principles universally. Our nation will be the better for it.”
