WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement after the Senate confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next justice of the United States Supreme Court.
“For the second time in two years, the Senate has confirmed a highly qualified judge to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Despite attempts to smear his good name, Judge Kavanaugh has proven himself to be a mainstream, independent judge. He understands that it is the judge’s job to apply the law, not legislate from the bench. Decisions the Supreme Court makes will impact our freedoms, our land, and the rights of every person in Wyoming. I’m confident Justice Kavanaugh will serve all of us with fairness and respect for the Constitution.”
