Both Kansas senators say they will be voting to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court when the vote takes place next week.
Senator Jerry Moran said, “He is a well-qualified nominee with a deep respect for the Constitution and I still believe that to be true.”
Sen. Moran went on to say, “His intellect and extensive experience in the legal field will serve the Supreme Court well. I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh as Justice Kavanaugh.”

And Senator Pat Roberts said, “The embarrassing actions of the minority have contributed to the denigration of the Senate as an institution and more important, to the fundamental American judicial principle that one is innocent until proven guilty.”
Sen. Roberts added, “I will not be a party to this destruction and will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.”
Senate Republicans have pushed Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination past a procedural hurdle, but a confirmation vote remains delayed for at least a week amid a new FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the move late Friday after a tumultuous day on Capitol Hill.

Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him. His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting. Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. The Senate must vote!— Donald J.
