I applaud and congratulate the U.S. Senate for confirming our GREAT NOMINEE, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the United States Supreme Court. Later today, I will sign his Commission of Appointment, and he will be officially sworn in. Very exciting!
President Donald Trump,
Just saw and heard my Senator .@SenCortezMasto vote “NO” on #Kavanaugh. Thank you for standing with Nevada women. My team and I are in tears.
Congratulations @ BrettKavanaugh!
Michael J. McDonald, chairman of the Nevada Republican Party,
Kavanaugh’s 50-48 is one of the narrowest Supreme Court confirmations in modern times (Clarence Thomas was 52-48). Only Democrat to vote YES was Joe Manchin. Republican Steve Daines was absent so Lisa Murkowski, a NO, asked to be recorded as PRESENT to preserve the margin.

Judge Kavanaugh is among the very best our nation has to offer. He will make the Senate and the country proud. He will serve with distinction on our highest court. He unquestionably deserves confirmation. And the country deserves such a Supreme Court Justice. #ConfirmKavanaugh
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., @senatemajldr
The confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh shifts the court far to the right, putting women’s reproductive rights, civil rights, environmental protections, worker’s rights, the ability to implement gun safety rules and the ability to hold presidents accountable at risk for a generation.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.,
SCOTUS vote was about a specific nominee facing specific & ultimately uncorroborated allegations. Some now gloating about how its going to help win elections. Others stir rage & now tears from victims by portraying it as referendum on sexual violence. Just terrible for America.
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.,
50 voted yes for Kavanaugh. They need to be voted out of Congress.
Brett Kavanaugh had to deal with fraudulent accusations in a baseless attempt to smear & defame his character to prevent him from being the next conservative on the Supreme Court. These Dem political dirty tricks will no longer be tolerated. He will be confirmed. #KavanaughVote

Sadly, not only has #Kavanaugh been confirmed today but it has also confirmed that America is now broken beyond repair.
