FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 6, 2018
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Jody Rushton, president of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), issued the following statement regarding today’s U.S. Senate confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“On behalf of Republican women across the nation, I offer hearty congratulations to Brett Kavanaugh. While I have serious concerns about what it took to get to this point, I am thrilled that Judge Kavanaugh has finally been confirmed as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.
“The NFRW has supported Judge Kavanaugh since President Trump nominated him in early July. Over the past few weeks, I have heard from thousands of our Republican women members. They have expressed utter dismay and disgust with the way Democrats have polluted and politicized the confirmation process in an attempt to destroy a good man who by all measures is eminently-qualified to sit on our nation’s highest court. Their message has been unequivocal and firm: 'Confirm Judge Kavanaugh!'
“Thank you to those senators who took their constitutional responsibility seriously, carefully and dispassionately examined the facts and testimony, and showed courage and fairness by confirming Judge Kavanaugh. From now on, we will be calling him Justice Kavanaugh.”
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest and most influential Republican women's group in the nation, proudly representing the party that first made it possible for women to vote in the U.S. The NFRW works to increase the effectiveness and relevance of women in the cause of good government.
