Local Reaction: Kavanaugh Will Safeguard Personal Liberties
SAN ANGELO, TX -- San Angelo Live asked Tom Green County Republican Party Chairman Jeff Betty Monday night for reaction to President Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh as U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
This is Chairman Betty's statement: "Brett Kavanaugh was a clerk for retiring Justice Kennedy. He had impeccable credentials having served for the last twelve years on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. He has successfully passed through the confirmation process before and should have an easy time of it. Unfortunately, the party of the left and their friends in the media have made it clear that they will use any tactic in an effort to derail this process. Once Justice Kavanaugh is confirmed, it will no longer be possible for liberal activist judges to prevent the President from exercising his lawful and necessary power to lead this country even further back from the brink the former President was driving us to. I am certain our basic and fundamental liberties as citizens will be now safeguarded for at least the foreseeable future."
