Senator Burr Statement on Judge Kavanaugh Nomination

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement on the status of the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

“Democrats made it clear they would stop at nothing to block President Trump’s Supreme Court pick before Judge Kavanaugh was even chosen as the nominee. President Trump has every right to nominate the individual of his choosing to the Supreme Court, and the Senate should go through the normal advice and consent process, as it has done for the last 12 weeks. Immediately following the conclusion of Thursday’s hearing, the Senate Judiciary Committee should vote up or down on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. I intend to support Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination when it comes before the full Senate.”
