PRESS RELEASE: PA GOP Chairman congratulates Judge Brett Kavanaugh on being nominated to Supreme Court of the United States

Monday night, President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States.

On the nomination, Pennsylvania Republican Party Chairman Val DiGiorgio made the following statement:

“I want to congratulate President Donald Trump on making an excellent nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States.

“Judge Kavanaugh has the judicial temperament and respect for the Constitution needed to make an excellent Supreme Court Justice.

“I wholeheartedly support the President’s choice and will be working with all diligence to support the nomination and urge the Senate to swiftly act on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

“As the confirmation process moves forward it is important to note that leading obstructionist Sen. Bob Casey said he would oppose this nomination, even before it was made public.

“This is a case-in-point of Bob Casey’s blind obstruction, which is not aimed at advancing the needs of Pennsylvanians or doing what is best for the country, but is merely a tool to score points with an increasingly-socialist liberal donor base.”
