WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom Rice (R-S.C.) released the following statement on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.  

The resistance went to appalling lengths to stop Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, but sanity prevailed. His impending election even forced one Democrat, Senator Manchin, to make Judge Kavanaugh’s ascension a bipartisan vote. The upside to all of this is exposing the tactics of the liberal left to the entire nation. I am confident that the American people will remember all of this on Election Day” said Congressman Rice. “The days of legislating from the bench are over. As a Supreme Court Justice, I am confident Judge Kavanaugh will continue his unwavering commitment to interpreting the Constitution as it is written, protecting our individual liberties, and upholding the rule of law.”
