PEARCE STATEMENT ON NEW SUPREME COURT JUSTICE NOMINATION

Jul 10, 2018

Washington, DC (July 10, 2018) Last night, President Trump announced his nomination for the new Supreme Court Justice. Congressman Pearce weighs in on his decision.

“Last night, President Trump made the announcement to nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who currently serves on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, as his pick for the new Supreme Court Justice. Brett Kavanaugh’s background demonstrates he has a long record of legal accomplishment, having spent time clerking for former Justice Kennedy, as well as, the Third and Ninth Court of Appeals. It is my belief that Supreme Court Justices should adhere to the Constitution in preserving our liberties as American citizens. I look forward to the confirmation hearings and it is my hope that the confirmation process will reveal Brett Kavanaugh to be a highly qualified Justice committed to preserving our freedoms as set forth in the Constitution.”
