Speaker Moore Statement on Nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to U.S. Supreme Court

Raleigh, N.C. – North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) released a statement Monday supporting the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Donald J. Trump.

Brett Kavanaugh is a United States Circuit Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

“Nominees to our nation’s Supreme Court should exemplify a steadfast pursuit of justice with a legal record that reflects fairness, independence and an impartial deference to the U.S. Constitution,” Moore said Monday evening.

“I strongly support Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court because he embodies all of those qualities and more – a truly outstanding selection by President Trump to faithfully serve the American people on our country’s most powerful bench.”  

Kavanaugh was nominated by President Trump to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan and served three decades on the U.S. Supreme Court.
