HYDE-SMITH STATEMENT ON VOTE TO ADVANCE KAVANAUGH NOMINATION

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today issued the following statement regarding her vote to end debate and move toward a final vote to confirm Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to be an associate justice on the United States Supreme Court:

“This procedural vote was easy for me.  The excellent impression Judge Kavanaugh made when we met only grew stronger after I reviewed his record, and followed a confirmation process that can only be described as unnecessarily ugly.  The FBI’s supplemental background investigation only reaffirmed my earlier judgement that Brett Kavanaugh is imminently qualified to serve on the Supreme Court.  I look forward to his confirmation.

“The anger around the nation is understandable, but could have been avoided.  Senate Democrats could have followed procedure rather than raw politics.  Decisions made by the Democratic minority have instead resulted in a disservice to victims of sexual violence, to Judge Kavanaugh, and the American people.”
