September 29: I also listened very carefully to Judge Kavanaugh as he testified, and I felt that the testimony he gave was also honest. He gave, I thought, very strong testimony that he was not there. I don't feel the evidence shows that Judge Kavanaugh was there that night. I believed his testimony. (Idaho State Journal)

August 21: “Judge Kavanaugh is a respected jurist, with a sterling reputation for intellectual rigor and attention to legal detail. He understands the proper role of a judge in our legal system–to fairly interpret the law, not create it,” said Crapo from the Senate floor. “He thinks deeply about the legal questions before him and strives to build consensus on the court.”..."Judge Kavanaugh’s experience and legal background are not in dispute. His readiness for the Supreme Court is not contested. His law clerks vouch for him. Lawyers who argue before him commend him for his fairness, judgement, and temperament. His peers admire and respect his intellect and draw regularly from his opinions. In short, he is a judge’s judge." (senate.gov)

July 11: After meeting Judge Kavanaugh in person, I am more convinced than ever he deserves a full review of his record so that the American people will know his background & character. I look forward to him coming before @senjudiciary to speak about his experience & knowledge more deeply (Twitter)

July 9: Judge Kavanaugh has a strong background of legal experience and knowledge and I congratulate him on this high honor. I take seriously my constitutional responsibility to thoroughly review this nomination. As that review is conducted, I have long said that judges at every level of our judicial system must look first and foremost to the Constitution for guidance in all legal matters and interpret it as it is written. Judges must not engage in creating new law by judicial activism from the bench. I look forward to meeting with Judge Kavanaugh once the confirmation process moves forward. (senate.gov)
