LaMalfa Supports President Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee
Jul 9, 2018
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after President Donald Trump selected Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court vacancy left by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.
LaMalfa said: “One of the most impactful decisions a U.S. President can make is selecting a Supreme Court Justice, as they could be on the bench for many years. I’m pleased that for the second time in as many years, President Trump has made a solid decision that will preserve our Constitution by selecting a strong conservative voice that will serve on the court for many years to come. Brett Kavanaugh has established a track record of fighting regulatory overreach on the D.C. Court of Appeals since 2006, and he would bring those same values to the Supreme Court. I call upon the Senate to ensure he is confirmed in a timely and respectful manner.”
Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
