U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., released the following statement after President Trump’s nomination of the Honorable Brett M. Kavanaugh to serve as associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
“I appreciate President Trump acting quickly to nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the seat vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy. The chance to serve on the highest court in the land is a great honor bestowed with incredible responsibility. I am excited to once again review Judge Kavanaugh’s qualifications and record to ensure they demonstrate his commitment to the rule of law. I support Senate Leader Mitch McConnell’s commitment to upholding Senate precedent and following regular order, with an expected vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination this fall.”
In 2006, Enzi voted to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to be a United States Circuit Judge for the District of Columbia Circuit.
