WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) pledged to advocate for the confirmation of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. Hyde-Smith met with Kavanaugh on Wednesday.
 
“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 in a news release. 
 
Kavanaugh's visit comes as the Senate Judiciary Committee prepares to conduct confirmation proceedings.
 
“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 currently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and would fill the seat vacated by retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy if confirmed.
