Rounds Meets with Supreme Court Nominee Judge Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) today issued the following statement on his meeting with Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court:

“I appreciate the opportunity to meet with Judge Kavanaugh today. We had a wide-ranging discussion regarding privacy, states’ rights and regulatory overreach by the executive branch. Now more than ever, we need a strong justice who will uphold the Constitution as it was written. Judge Kavanaugh is a highly-qualified candidate who is committed to upholding the rule of law, rather than legislating from the bench. I look forward to supporting his nomination to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.”
