AFP-ND Applauds Trump Administration on the Nomination of Judge Kavanaugh and Urges a Swift Confirmation


Today, Americans for Prosperity-ND applauded the Trump administration’s nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court of the United States. AFP-ND will commit its full resources and permanent grassroots infrastructure to his confirmation.

Americans for Prosperity – North Dakota state director, Mike Fedorchak issued the following statement:

“President Trump promised to nominate a Supreme Court Justice who will defend the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and Judge Kavanaugh will do exactly that. Judge Kavanaugh has the qualifications, the legal temperament and the judicial restraint required to serve on the nation’s highest court. AFP-ND urges Senator Heitkamp and Senator Hoeven to swiftly confirm Judge Kavanaugh.” 

Brett Kavanaugh, a graduate of Yale Law School and former clerk to Justice Anthony Kennedy, received bipartisan support in 2006 for his confirmation to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. During his 12 years on the federal bench, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a commitment to the rule of law and is widely respected for his principled approach to interpreting the Constitution as written.

Background on Americans for Prosperity national efforts:

Americans for Prosperity will commit seven-figures to paid advertising and grassroots engagement in support of Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation. Door and phone scripts have already been deployed to each of the 36 AFP state chapters and a first round of mail and door hangers will be deployed in the coming weeks in West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Florida, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Montana, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.  Later this month, AFP will host events, tele-townhalls, and Facebook Live conversations with key lawmakers about the proper role of the courts and the importance of confirming jurists who interpret the law as written.
