Sen. Collins’ Kavanaugh defense praised

Oct. 5, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) for her defense of Judge Brett Kavanaugh on the floor of the U.S. Senate:

“Sen. Susan Collins demonstrated the kind of sober reflection that the Constitution calls for through the advice and consent process, and her call for a return to civility should be embraced by all. Collins’ decision to vote yes on the Kavanaugh nomination makes it highly likely that he will confirmed this weekend. Perhaps most significantly, the American people have had the important constitutional judicial cornerstone of due process brought firmly before them. This reminder of the tenuousness of the presumption of innocence will hopefully steel Americans everywhere to defend it at the ballot box. Finally, we’d like to thank Sen. Collins for her measured, open-minded approach. Her review of the Kavanaugh cases was impressive and demonstrated that she placed extraordinary emphasis on his qualifications and judicial philosophy to serve on the Supreme Court.”
