Urge Heitkamp to confirm Kavanaugh

Dick Walstad


President Trump promised the American people during his 2016 campaign that he would appoint mainstream, highly qualified judges to the Supreme Court, and with the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, he is doing just that.

The American Bar Association awarded Judge Kavanaugh a rating of “well-qualified,” the standing committee’s highest possible rating. Additionally, recent polls show the people of North Dakota want their Senators to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp should listen to the people of North Dakota and vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. His experience on the DC Circuit, the second highest court in the land, and his Ivy League background equip him to be the perfect ninth vote on the Supreme Court bench. Moreover, his commitment to upholding the Constitution and the rule of law make him the mainstream, impartial voice that America needs.

Senate Democrats are doing everything they can to oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination, even though they have no reason to oppose him. The people of North Dakota do not take these scare tactics seriously. We call on Senator Heitkamp to listen to her constituents, stand for the interests of her state, and vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.
