WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today voted to confirm President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, affirming her belief that the nominee will be a credit to the nation’s highest court.
“A vote to fill a Supreme Court vacancy is one of the most consequential that a Senator will ever make. Brett Kavanaugh earned my vote with his impeccable qualifications and his steadfastness throughout a confirmation process tainted by sordid accusations and crass partisan treachery.
“Judge Kavanaugh never wavered from his vow not to buckle under political or public pressure, which is a characteristic we need in a Supreme Court justice. I believe Judge Kavanaugh will be a justice whose adherence to the Constitution and the rule of law will be a credit to the Court and all Americans.
“The American people know they deserve better than what the nation has experienced over the past few weeks.”
Kavanaugh was confirmed on a 50-48 vote.
