September 28: Just got off the phone with Judge Kavanaugh. Very proud to share that the great people of Montana are standing behind him and I look forward to casting my vote to confirm him. #KavanaughConfirmation (Twitter)

September 2: Montanans overwhelmingly want a Supreme Court Justice with impeccable academic credentials, someone who does not legislate from the bench, but upholds the rule of law and who follows the Constitution. Judge Kavanaugh is without a doubt that person. (Montana Standard)

July 17: As a U.S. Senator, one of my most significant responsibilities is to critically and thoughtfully evaluate the individuals charged with defending our Constitution and our nation's laws. It is disappointing that many of my Democrat colleagues in the Senate apparently do not feel the same and decided to oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination before it was even announced. In our meeting today, I found that Judge Kavanaugh has proven himself to be a well-qualified judge who appreciates the vital role that our Supreme Court holds and understands that it not appropriate for justices to legislate from the bench, but that they must apply the Constitution without regard to the policy outcome they want. I am confident that Judge Kavanaugh will serve well on our nation's highest court and hope that he will receive a fair confirmation hearing. I offer him my full support and my vote. (

July 9: As a United States Senator, confirming a Supreme Court justice is one of the most consequential votes I will take. Brett Kavanaugh has an impressive background and excellent experience. I look forward to meeting with the nominee and reviewing his judicial record to ensure we are putting the most qualified justice on the highest court to defend the United States Constitution. (
