State Director’s letter to the editor posted on ArgusLeader.com:
Kudos to Senators Thune and Rounds for their support of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Thune stated that Kavanaugh “has effectively demonstrated his commitment to deciding cases based on the law, not on his own political opinions or preferred outcomes.” Rounds acknowledged that the judge “is a highly-qualified candidate who is committed to upholding the rule of law rather than legislating from the bench.”
Undoubtedly Judge Kavanaugh is eminently qualified for the Supreme Court. He is a jurist who upholds the Constitution as written, instead of relying on the notion of a “living Constitution” that some judges use to enact their personal opinions into law. Kavanaugh’s reputation for impartiality and fairness is well known. He has stood up for religious liberty, has a strong free-speech record, and has recognized that government has a valid interest in choosing life over abortion.
Kavanaugh has served on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2006. Demonstrating a consistent record of fidelity to the Constitution, he has written more than 300 clear and measured opinions, showing great respect for the fundamental separation of powers as required by the Constitution.
Even many liberal scholars agree Kavanaugh is highly qualified and should be confirmed swiftly.
