WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator Mike Lee, R-Utah, is singing the praises of Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh after the pair met yesterday.
Lee released a statement after the two met yesterday saying “his insight into the current state of the law and the constitution shows he is just the kind of originalist jurist we need on the court.”
The senator reserved judgment on whether or not he’d vote for him earlier this month after President Trump announced the pick. Lee himself was also considered for the Supreme court vacancy left by retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Kavanaugh has met with more than 15 GOP senators as Republicans look to schedule a confirmation hearing in late August.
