Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s nominee to the United States Supreme Court:

“The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a complete non-starter.  In nominating Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump has selected someone with views well outside the mainstream.  Given the cases the Court will weigh in on in coming years, the integrity of the Supreme Court and the lives of millions of Americans will be directly impacted by this pick.  I have deep concerns about Brett Kavanaugh's nomination, and I will remain actively engaged in the Senate’s confirmation process.”
