October 4: I predict that by Saturday night, Judge Kavanaugh will be Justice Kavanaugh serving on the U.S. Supreme Court. (Twitter)

September 17: Cruz also said Ford should have a "full opportunity to tell her story before the Judiciary Committee, and Judge Kavanaugh should have a full opportunity to defend himself." But while Cruz called for such a hearing to take place "sooner, rather than later," he stopped short of calling for a public hearing or delaying Thursday's scheduled committee vote, as Democrats have demanded. (Houston Chronicle)

July 22: “There’s no doubt that Rand’s concerns about privacy and the Fourth Amendment are longstanding and genuine and existed long before this nomination. And I share many of those concerns,” said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). But not when it comes to Kavanaugh, Cruz said: “I think the body of Judge Kavanaugh's work merit confirmation.” (Note: We have not yet confirmed the exact date of these comments, but the article was posted early in the morning of 7/23/2018.) (Politico)

July 17: Despite Senate Democrats’ best efforts to demagogue this nomination, they will be unsuccessful. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I look forward to supporting his nomination, and am confident that the Senate will move swiftly to confirm Judge Kavanaugh in the coming months.

July 9: By any measure, Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most respected federal judges in the country and I look forward to supporting his nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States. For over a decade, Judge Kavanaugh has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, often referred to as the second highest court in the land. He has over 300 published opinions, with a strong record of defending the Second Amendment, safeguarding the separation of powers, reining in the unchecked power of federal agencies, and preserving our precious religious liberties. Senate Democrats, sadly, will try to demagogue this nomination, but their efforts will not be successful. I am confident that the Senate will take up his nomination quickly, and I fully expect that he will be confirmed before the first Monday in October, the beginning of the Supreme Court's Term. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I look forward to his confirmation hearing, where Judge Kavanaugh will have the opportunity to demonstrate to the American people that he will uphold the rule of law and interpret the Constitution according to its original meaning.
