“I believe Judge Kavanaugh is a well-qualified conservative jurist, and I commend President Trump for his commitment to naming Supreme Court justices who are committed to the rule of law.  I appreciate the significance of my responsibility to weigh the qualifications of the nominee, including his dedication to the Constitution and the fair interpretation of our laws.  I look forward to being part of this important process.”
