WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today met with Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, and pledged to be an advocate for his confirmation.

“I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Judge Kavanaugh.  His qualifications are excellent, and he has a genuine concern for our country, and for upholding the Constitution and rule of law,” Hyde-Smith said.

“I firmly believe the President made a great decision in nominating Judge Kavanaugh.  I’m excited about his nomination, and look forward to supporting him and being an advocate for his confirmation,” she said.  “Mississippians will be proud to have him serve on the Court.”

Kavanaugh’s visit is part of his effort to build support for his nomination as the Senate Judiciary Committee prepares to conduct confirmation proceedings.

Kavanaugh currently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.  With Senate confirmation, Kavanaugh would fill the seat vacated by retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.
