Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-ID), who was at the White House for the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, issued the following statement:

“I was honored to be invited to the White House to attend the President’s introduction and nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Over the course of Judge Kavanaugh’s extensive career, he has shown a strong deference to the rule of law and has defended the separation of powers. His nomination, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch’s, reflect President Trump’s deep commitment to upholding our U.S. Constitution. Once confirmed, Judge Kavanaugh’s presence on the high court will preserve this important document for generations to come.”
