U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton said Wednesday that after an “excellent” meeting with Judge Brett Kavanaugh, he looks forward to supporting the Supreme Court nominee. “We spoke at length about his jurisprudence, which I’ve reviewed over the last month, and how he sees the Supreme Court’s role in our constitutional democracy,” Cotton, a Republican, said in a statement. In July, President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh, a former law clerk for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, to serve on the Supreme Court after Kennedy announced his plans to retire. The Arkansas senator said the conversation included Kavanaugh stressing that “judges should not impose their personal views on the public but instead apply the law as written.” “He has a long and impressive record of public service from his time on the D.C. circuit, and it’s clear he has the character and judgement to serve in this very important post,” Cotton said. Kavanaugh was set to meet with U.S. Sen. John Boozman, also of Arkansas, later Wednesday. Read Thursday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for full details.
