Mississippi Senators on Judge Kavanaugh vote
Mississippi Republican Senator Roger Wicker has confirmed his vote for Judge Kavanaugh. News 25 spoke with him on the phone. Here’s what he had to say: “I don’t think we’re well served with judges who like to make up constitutional law to suit their own political agendas so I think Judge Kavanaugh will be in the main tier. We don’t know how he will vote every time just like we don’t know how the chief justice is going to vote every time, but he’ll be right there with Judge Roberts and Judge Gorsuch.”
Mississippi Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith issued a statement today regarding her vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S Supreme Court.
Here’s what she had to say: “This procedural vote was easy for me. The excellent impression Judge Kavanaugh made when we met only grew stronger after I reviewed his record and followed a confirmation process that can only be described as unnecessarily ugly. The FBI’s supplemental background investigation only reaffirmed my earlier judgement that Brett Kavanaugh is imminently qualified to serve on the Supreme Court. I look forward to his confirmation. The anger around the nation is understandable, but could have been avoided. Senate Democrats could have followed procedure rather than raw politics. Decisions made by the Democratic minority have instead resulted in a disservice to victims of sexual violence, to Judge Kavanaugh, and the American people.”
