New Mexico Republicans Celebrate Kavanaugh Appointment To Supreme Court


Commentary: Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi made the following statement after the United States Senate confirmed the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

“From the beginning it was clear that Judge Kavanaugh’s extensive experience qualified him for nomination to our nation's highest court. It was clear that Democrats would do anything in their power to stop that nomination for reasons that had nothing to do with qualifications and everything to do with partisanship. Sadly, they turned the confirmation process into a national disgrace. Sen. Tom Udall and Sen. Martin Heinrich made the process worse with their extreme partisanship instead of standing with New Mexicans and supporting a qualified nominee."

"Fortunately the Democrats' efforts were in vain. Today the Senate approved the nomination of a highly qualified constitutionalist who will serve the court and our country with distinction. We congratulate Justice Kavanaugh on his confirmation to the Supreme Court."
