What Hoosiers are Saying About Judge Kavanaugh

 

Time for Donnelly to choose
“Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly has been engaged in an intense game of Whac-A-Mole – trying to knock down all the threats to a successful re-election bid. The latest, and perhaps one of the most difficult moles to whack, will be his vote on President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court…Ironically, Kavanaugh’s confirmation may also make or break Donnelly’s re-election bid. And the moles will just keep coming.”

LTE: Sen. Donnelly, Hoosiers want Kavanaugh confirmed for Supreme Court
“…will Sen. Donnelly follow the will of Hoosiers and vote ‘yes’ for the immensely qualified Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be the next justice of the Supreme Court? Or will he take his orders from Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren in Washington? If he doesn’t choose correctly, our choice will be easy on Election Day.”

Former U.S. Rep. David McIntosh (IN-02): By every measure, Kavanaugh merits Supreme Court seat
“Over 12 years as a federal appeals court judge, Kavanaugh’s opinions reflect a clear understanding of the judicial role under the Constitution. This is a judge who has firmly defended the separation of powers as designed by the framers; consistently adhered to the Constitution and laws as written; and left political issues to the executive and legislative branches, where they belong.”

Editorial Board: Supreme Court nominee deserves consideration
“Does Kavanaugh have these qualities? By many accounts, he’s a genuine family man and a dedicated and bright attorney and judge. While his record of majority and dissenting opinions consistently shows a conservative bent, Kavanaugh does not have a reputation for extreme, blatantly partisan rulings.”

LTE: Donnelly’s vote will determine his future
“Sen. Joe Donnelly votes for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Donnelly is sworn in for a second term as Indiana’s senior U.S. senator. If Donnelly votes against Kavanaugh, Mike Braun becomes senator. No amount of money, ads or campaign strategy will override this one decision.”

LTE: Kavanaugh is sterling choice for jurist
“Kavanaugh has an exemplary judiciary temperament that the Founding Fathers would have taken pride in, and he is the exactly the kind of man Americans can trust to interpret original understanding of the Constitution, and not to legislate from the bench.”
