The Best Choice

For the second time during his term in office, President Trump has had the opportunity to place a new Justice on the Supreme Court. His first pick Justice Neil Gorsuch was an excellent one, and since joining the high court, Justice Gorsuch has served faithfully and diligently. When Justice Anthony Kennedy, who has served on the Supreme Court for nearly 30 years, announced his retirement earlier this year, another critical seat opened. President Trump swiftly and decisively nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals in D.C. to replace Justice Kennedy.

This week there has been plenty of fervor surrounding the confirmation hearings for Judge Kavanaugh. My Democratic colleagues in the Senate have been primed to disrupt these hearing proceedings before even listening to Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony. They should remember that Judge Kavanaugh stands before them with an exceptional resume and superb credentials. In fact, he has been praised many times as one of the most qualified nominees in years. I certainly agree with those sentiments.
