WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after President Trump announced his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court:

“Brett Kavanaugh appears to be a judge who believes in limited government, as our Founding Fathers intended. Ensuring we uphold our Constitutional freedoms and the rule of law is of even greater importance as we consider the significance the Supreme Court has on influential issues. I thank President Trump for his commitment to nominating a principled judge, and I look forward to seeing a decisive confirmation process in the Senate.”
