RJC Statement on the Confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

The Republican Jewish Coalition applauded the Senate confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court today.

RJC National Chairman Senator Norm Coleman said:

The Senate has the weighty duty of providing advice and consent to the President’s nominees to high public office. In this case, the Senate has acted fittingly in confirming an outstanding judge to the highest court of the land. 

We’ve seen how toxic the atmosphere has gotten in Washington. We need to maintain the Republican majorities in Congress in order to see the successful economic, foreign policy, and national security initiatives of this President and this Congress move forward.

RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said:

The process of confirming Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was difficult and contentious – and clear evidence of the tremendous importance of the upcoming midterm elections. Without a Republican majority in the Senate, Judge Kavanaugh could well be the last Trump nominee for any post to be confirmed.
