Gardner Meets With Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Washington, DC- Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement today after his meeting with Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

“Today I was able to meet with Judge Kavanaugh –  clearly he is a well-qualified judge who has incredible experience in the federal courts,” said Senator Gardner. “We had a long conversation about the role of precedent and how a judge should perform on the bench. It’s not about personal opinion, it’s not about personal biases or policy preferences, it’s about looking at the law and ruling on the law and where the law takes you. We had a good conversation about how he would be on the Supreme Court. It was a very good meeting and I think he will make an incredible Supreme Court Justice.”
