Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court to replace retiring justice, Anthony Kennedy. Congressman Biggs released the following statement:

“I commend President Trump for again keeping his promise to nominate a Supreme Court candidate who follows the intent of our Constitution and not legislate from the bench. I give my unequivocal endorsement to Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

“America’s constitution stands at a crossroads, and each Supreme Court vacancy represents a critical juncture between adherence to our founders’ designs or a misguided reliance on the Constitution as a ‘living document.’ I’m urging our Senators to swiftly confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh​.”
