NAHB supports Supreme Court nomination
NAHB says Brett Kavanaugh is a worthy successor to retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Following President Donald Trump’s selection of Brett Kavanaugh to fill the U.S. Supreme Court seat being vacated by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has placed its support behind the nomination.
In a statement issued by the NAHB, chairman Randy Noel said, “NAHB supports President Trump’s nomination of Judge Kavanaugh as Associate Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. He is a worthy successor to retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Throughout his distinguished career, Judge Kavanaugh has been recognized for his sharp legal mind and as a stalwart defender of our Constitution.”
“Judge Kavanaugh is eminently qualified to serve on our nation’s highest court. We would urge all senators to vote yes on his confirmation and oppose any efforts to delay consideration,” said Noel, also a custom home builder in LaPlace, La.
Kavanaugh is a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He served as White House Staff Secretary during the Presidency of George W. Bush.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh will not take place until September or October, prior to November elections.
