SAINT PAUL, MN – After today’s announcement that Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire from the United States Supreme Court at the end of July, Karin Housley, Minnesota state senator and Republican-endorsed candidate for United States Senate, issued the following statement:
“Justice Anthony Kennedy has admirably served our country and I salute him for his years on the Court. Now, it’s up to the United States Senate to fulfill its responsibility and expeditiously confirm a Supreme Court justice who will support our constitution and uphold the rule of law. This is an extraordinarily consequential moment in American history – the direction of our nation is literally on the line. Those on the far-left, like Tina Smith, will do everything they can to use this Supreme Court vacancy as a means to obstruct President Trump and the Republican agenda. More than ever before, Minnesotans need a U.S. Senator who will fiercely defend our laws and our constitution – and I’m that person.”
