Gov. Scott Statement on the Senate Confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott released the below statement following the Senate confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Governor Rick Scott said, “After weeks of being forced to endure the complete circus that Washington has become, I am glad to finally see Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. I know that Judge Kavanaugh will continue to faithfully uphold our Constitution and fairly interpret our laws.
“Witnessing career politicians in Washington make a complete mockery of the Supreme Court confirmation process has made it even more clear that we MUST have term limits for Congress. Any politician who has been in office so long that they would allow partisan politics to take precedence over the U.S. Supreme Court does not deserve to represent American families… and Senator Nelson is a perfect example of this. He said he would vote against the nominee before Kavanaugh was even announced, he failed to meet with Kavanaugh despite months of opportunities, and he allowed democratic party boss Chuck Schumer to control his vote all the way through. Considering that Senator Nelson’s entire campaign is funded by democrat leaders like Schumer, this is hardly a surprise – but it is absolutely shameful.
“This embarrassing charade is exactly why I am fighting to bring change to D.C., and why I will continue to work every single day to make Washington work for families, not for the career politicians.”
