U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.  

"Brett Kavanaugh is a serious jurist known for careful deliberation. This doesn’t matter to many on the left. Sadly, the #Resistance is going to try to bork him by portraying him as a cross between Lex Luthor and Darth Vader. This isn’t the apocalypse – this is an opportunity to thoroughly review Kavanaugh’s record, debate this seriously, and celebrate our system of checks, balances, and limited government."
