MONTGOMERY – On Monday, Governor Kay Ivey released the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

“I applaud President Trump for his nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.  Judge Kavanaugh clearly understands the proper role of a judge is to interpret the law as it is written and apply the law impartially.  It is imperative that judges adhere to the Constitution and resist judicial activism.  As a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Kavanaugh will have the opportunity to set valuable precedents for lower court judges all over the country to follow.

“Another conservative justice on the U.S. Supreme Court who honors the original intent of the Constitution will have a positive impact on our country for decades.   I look forward to following the U.S. Senate confirmation process.”
