WASHINGTON — Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on the Senate’s vote to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“President Trump kept his promise by choosing an extremely qualified defender of the Constitution who will be a faithful advocate and champion for the rule of law. Justice Kavanaugh will make an excellent addition to the United States Supreme Court,” said Chairwoman McDaniel.

“Senate Democrats’ motivations were clear from the beginning of Justice Kavanaugh’s nomination: delay, obstruct, and resist. Throughout this confirmation process, their tactics have been shameful and their intentions purely political. Unfortunately, their obstruction campaign has backfired. Republican voters are energized and the American people are ready and eager to hold obstructionist Democrats accountable for their reckless behavior in November.”
