On radio: Mark Cochran of Cevian Design Lab, an avid watcher of the Supreme Court of the United States, joins us at 8:10 this morning on Hometown Headlines Radio Edition on WRGA 98.7 FM/online at wrga.streamon.fm with his reaction to Trump’s pick for the next justice.
U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., on Brett Kavanaugh nomination to become the next justice on the Supreme Court: “I congratulate Judge Kavanaugh, who is a talented and experienced jurist, on his nomination to our nation’s highest court. I firmly believe that justices who understand and apply the law based on the U.S. Constitution, and not on their own personal political views, should fill seats on our Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh’s record indicates that he shares a strong commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law. I look forward to meeting with him soon and working with my Senate colleagues and the administration during the confirmation process to ensure that this highly qualified candidate is voted on by the Senate in time for the Court’s next session.”
U.S. Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the United States Supreme Court: “Judge Kavanaugh has an impressive academic and legal background. He graduated from Yale Law School, clerked for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, served as staff secretary for President George W. Bush, and served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for more than a decade. Judge Kavanaugh understands the long-lasting impact Supreme Court decisions have on our nation, and I look forward to meeting with him soon.”
