July 9, 2018

Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Adam Paul Laxalt issued the following statement after the President nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

    “I applaud the President’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on our Nation’s highest court. Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to the rule of law in reading the constitution according to its original meaning, rather than reinterpreting our constitution according to his own personal preferences. That is the proper role of judges, and the only way to depoliticize our third branch of government. I encourage the Senate to fairly and expeditiously confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”
