Posted on July 9, 2018

WASHINGTON, July 9, 2018 – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court:

“The president has nominated a well-qualified jurist. Unfortunately, the Senate has gotten into a bad habit of treating good people as ‘innocent until nominated.’ Instead, I hope this confirmation process will be conducted with dignity and respect so that we may learn more about Judge Kavanaugh’s character, temperament and attitudes.”
