October 6, 2018

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today issued the following statement after voting to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States:

“Judge Kavanaugh has been subjected to the most rigorous confirmation process in the history of the Supreme Court. This process revealed what we have known from the beginning: Judge Kavanaugh is highly-qualified, and Senate Democrats were willing to go to any lengths to prevent this nomination from moving forward. I am thankful their smear tactics were not successful and that the rule of law and due process have prevailed over obstruction and divisive political tactics. I proudly cast a vote for Judge Kavanaugh. I am confident he will be a fair-minded and honest addition to the Supreme Court.”
