Since being confirmed by the United States Senate 50-48 there has been a flurry of reaction to now-Justice Kavanaugh’s placement to the highest court in the land.
Today is a historic day for our country as a majority in the U.S. Senate voted to send a new voice to the Supreme Court who will uphold the timeless vision of America’s founders — Judge Brett Kavanaugh. My full statement below: pic.twitter.com/OYlkQEMOCR

Brett Kavanaugh is exactly the right person, at the right time to serve on the Supreme Court.
A conservative jurist. A good man with the background and experience worthy of this high honor.

The Senate confirmed Judge Kavanaugh against the will of millions of Americans. So many called their senators to ask they vote no. Women stepped forward with stories of experiencing the horrors and trauma of sexual assault.

Murkowski after Kavanaugh vote. Says amid the protests & the screams from demonstrators, she “was closing my eyes and praying. We need prayers. We need healing.”

Just before the vote, I thanked, hugged and consoled the hundreds of people who were still outside the Capitol and Supreme Court. Women who have relived the worst moments of their lives these past few weeks, and fought with courage for the millions who could not be here.
