SAINT PAUL, MN – Karin Housley, Minnesota state senator and Republican-endorsed candidate for U.S. Senate, issued the following statement in response President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court:
“President Trump made an excellent choice in nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve as the next associate justice of the United States Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh is a respected legal mind whose career has been spent upholding both the rule of law and, most importantly, our constitution. At a time when our nation’s founding principles are increasingly called into question, Judge Kavanaugh will make a tremendous addition to the High Court.
“Now, it’s up to the United States Senate to do its job and swiftly confirm Judge Kavanaugh. Tina Smith has shown she is in lockstep with the radical, left-wing brand of Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren – but I am hopeful she will put partisan politics aside and vote to confirm this highly-qualified nominee. Minnesotans deserve a senator who will choose the will of the people over towing the party line.”
