September 17: In a statement Monday, Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tennessee, said the committee should "carefully consider Dr. Ford's allegation and Judge Kavanaugh's response," before alleging that Democrats in the Senate may have known about the allegation prior to Kavanaugh's hearing, which he described as "troubling." (

July 26: In 2006, I voted for Judge Kavanaugh to serve on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals because he impressed me with his intelligence, temperament and experience. He is committed to deciding cases based upon the law and not his own point of view. The Senate is fortunate to have someone of his caliber to consider. (

July 9: The president has nominated a well-qualified jurist. Unfortunately, the Senate has gotten into a bad habit of treating good people as 'innocent until nominated.' Instead, I hope this confirmation process will be conducted with dignity and respect so that we may learn more about Judge Kavanaugh's character, temperament and attitudes. (Twitter)
