U.S. Senate Votes To Confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh To The U.S. Supreme Court

Albany, NY—Earlier today, the United States Senate voted on President Donald Trump’s nomination of D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. By a 50-48 margin, the Senate voted to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.  Rev. Jason J. McGuire, Executive Director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, made the following remarks:

“The confirmation process regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been filled with rancor. It has deepened ideological and political divides, both in Washington, D.C. and throughout the country. Thankfully, that process has now come to an end. New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms hopes and prays that soon-to-be-Justice Kavanaugh will prove his supporters right by upholding the Constitution and judging all cases in a fair and even-handed way. It is also our prayer that the people of the United States will find a way to overcome our differences and move forward. Finally, it is our prayer that the Supreme Court—which has, for the past several decades, usurped its proper role and legislated from the bench—will turn away from its past practices and begin to undo the damage it has done to the nation.”
