A Supreme Court nomination is the most consequential appointment that the Senate ever considers. As I have with nominees in the past, I will carefully review Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s character, legal decisions, and writing to determine whether he should be confirmed to this crucial position.
There are many critical issues I’ll focus on during this process, including whether Judge Kavanaugh would respect rulings upholding the ACA and if he would safeguard the civil rights of all Americans, protect women’s freedom to make their own reproductive health care decisions, and be independent and willing to exercise appropriate checks on the Presidency. I won’t make a final decision until I have met one-on-one with Judge Kavanaugh and observed his Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
I want to hear from you about what you’re looking for in a Supreme Court justice and your opinions on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. You can send me your thoughts at www.kaine.senate.gov/supremecourt and I look forward to reading through your feedback. There’s so much at stake.
