October 6: Voted Yes (The New York Times)

July 26: Today I was able to meet with Judge Kavanaugh – clearly he is a well-qualified judge who has incredible experience in the federal courts. We had a long conversation about the role of precedent and how a judge should perform on the bench. It’s not about personal opinion, it’s not about personal biases or policy preferences, it’s about looking at the law and ruling on the law and where the law takes you. We had a good conversation about how he would be on the Supreme Court. It was a very good meeting and I think he will make an incredible Supreme Court Justice. (

July 12: I expect, I believe [Senators Manchin, Heitkamp, and Donnelly] will vote for Judge Kavanaugh. And why? Not because of politics, well, yes, because of politics, but yes, because Judge Kavanaugh is a good judge, that if you look at his, if you look at his record, which we are getting into, and we will get into more, they’re going to see that you have a judge here who is a judge’s judge who has great respect. I saw a liberal Yale law professor write an op-ed in support of Judge Kavanaugh and his nomination. He’s going to have support from the left and the right. And they’re going to see that here is a judge who’s not going to rule base on personal opinion or biases, but the law. And that’s what we want of any judge on any court. (

July 9: I look forward to meeting soon with Judge Kavanaugh. Over the coming weeks I will review his judicial record while also ensuring that Judge Kavanaugh will approach each case on its merits and follow the law as it is written. I hope my colleagues on both sides of the aisle will thoughtfully and thoroughly review this individual during the confirmation process and carefully consider him rather than making a knee-jerk decision based on politics and nothing else.
