WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Dave Brat released the following statement:

"The Supreme Court serves as a check against the other branches of government. Judge Kavanaugh is the one of the most qualified individuals in the country to serve on the Supreme Court. He is a brilliant leader amongst his peers, a graduate of Yale Law School, and a distinguished lecturer at Harvard Law School. Of his 48 clerks, 39 have gone on to clerk at the Supreme Court. He has enjoyed a long, impressive career of public service, including clerking for Justice Kennedy, and his record demonstrates a commitment to impartiality and faithful adherence to the U.S. Constitution.

"Moreover, he is an All-American family man who has deliberately surrounded himself with strong women -- his wife, a majority number of female clerks, his daughters. He is an example in his community, active in his Church and servicing the needy. I commend the president for an excellent choice and look forward to his confirmation in the Senate."
