Sen. Rand Paul

(Worthy News) - Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh won the support of one critical Republican senator Monday and met privately with a key Democrat as he inches closer to securing enough votes for confirmation to the high court.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, one of a few Republicans who had not immediately backed President Trump’s nominee publicly, said he was assuaged after his meeting last week that Judge Kavanaugh would bring an open mind to privacy cases and be a strong supporter of First and Second Amendment rights.

“My conversation with Judge Kavanaugh reinforces my belief that he will evaluate cases before the Supreme Court from a textual and originalist point of view,” Mr. Paul said. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
