What West Virginians are Saying About Judge Kavanaugh

Wheeling News-Register Editorial: Manchin should back nominee
“Kavanaugh has said that if confirmed to the Supreme Court, his allegiance will be to the Constitution as it is written, not to his personal preferences. That is precisely what the nation needs.

That, not how Kavanaugh may rule on any single issue, ought to be Manchin’s concern. And if he determines the nominee will be an impartial arbiter, Manchin should vote for confirmation.”

Senator Manchin should listen to West Virginians on Kavanaugh
“West Virginians deserve someone who will be steadfast and unwavering in support of our West Virginia values. Not someone beholden to Chuck Schumer and liberals from New York and California who are critical of our values and way of life. Senator Manchin should listen to West Virginians and vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States.”

WV Agriculture Commissioner: Sen. Manchin should vote “yes” on Kavanaugh for Supreme Court
“Judge Kavanaugh is an experienced, intellectual, diligent judge with a fierce loyalty to our constitution as it is written. He has served the public for 25 years, and spent 12 years as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals. Judge Kavanaugh is also a family man, a great contributor to local charities and a faithful congregant at his church. Clearly, Judge Kavanaugh possesses the experience, moral fortitude and reliability required to fulfill a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court.”

By confirming Judge Kavanaugh, Manchin can support a stronger West Virginia
“West Virginia manufacturers hope that Sen. Manchin will take note of Kavanaugh’s impressive record, reputation for fairness, and skepticism for federal overreach, and cast his vote for Kavanaugh and for a stronger economic future for the Mountain State.”

Kavanaugh will follow US Constitution
“If Manchin’s is truly looking for a jurist who will follow ‘the rule of law and the Constitution,’ we’ve got good news — the president has already found that person, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Manchin could be an important voice for bipartisanship by announcing his support for President Trump’s nominee to the high court. Let’s hope he seizes the opportunity.”
