President Grantham’s Statement on President Trump’s Supreme Court Nomination
This morning, Colorado Senate President Kevin J. Grantham released the following statement regarding President Donald J. Trump’s nomination of Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court:
“The decision to select Judge Brett Kavanaugh to become the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court was an excellent one. Kavanaugh’s extensive experience, principled dedication to the Constitution, and youthfulness are going to be valuable assets to the Court.
As with the nomination proceedings of now-Justice Neil Gorsuch, I am sure that the confirmation of Kavanaugh will be fraught with hyper-partisan division and defamation, but the fact remains that Kavanaugh was last confirmed to the Court of Appeals, via the Senate, with bipartisan support. I would urge United States Senators Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet to vote with the American people and confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
