October 4: A vote against Judge Kavanaugh tomorrow will be a vote for abusing the confirmation process and a good person, and it will be a vote for the shameful intimidation tactics that have been employed as part of an orchestrated smear campaign. (Twitter)

September 28: We must always be fair to both the victims and those who stand accused. It has to be a two-way street. I believe he belongs on the nation's highest bench. And in a few more days, after a few more delays, we will finally vote to put him there and say enough with the games. (

September 28: I’m optimistic. We’ve been in constant communication with all of my colleagues. Some of them have requested additional information, which we’ve gotten for them. I'm optimistic we will confirm the judge. (

September 17: Cornyn, in a statement, said the Judiciary Committee "should treat this with the seriousness it deserves, in a way that is fair to both the individual making the accusation and the judge himself." He added that lawmakers "can do that through regular order and with bipartisan participation in a spirit of collaboration and concern for all involved.... which respects confidentiality." "That Democrats have so egregiously mishandled this up until now," Cornyn continued, "is no excuse for us to do the same. If Democrats reject the committee handling this swiftly and in a bipartisan way through regular order, then it's clear that their only intention is to smear Judge Kavanaugh and derail his nomination." Asked what regular order would entail, a Cornyn spokeswoman cited the process outlined by Grassley: "The standard procedure for updates to any nominee's background investigation file is to conduct separate follow-up calls with relevant parties," Grassley said in a statement."In this case, that would entail phone calls with at least Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford."

July 24: I'd say that [his] words and the opinions of his many supporters demonstrate Judge Kavanaugh is the right person to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court. (YouTube)

July 9: Judge Kavanaugh is an exceptionally-qualified jurist who will be a fair and impartial arbiter of the law and will not legislate from the bench. Throughout his tenure, Judge Kavanaugh has served with a high moral standard and demonstrated a clear commitment to faithfully intepreting the Constitution. (Twitter)
