U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith met with Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, and pledged to be an advocate for his confirmation.

“I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Judge Kavanaugh,” Hyde-Smith said. “His qualifications are excellent, and he has a genuine concern for our country, and for upholding the Constitution and rule of law. I firmly believe the President made a great decision in nominating Judge Kavanaugh.  I’m excited about his nomination, and look forward to supporting him and being an advocate for his confirmation,” she said.  “Mississippians will be proud to have him serve on the Court.”
