Letter: Confirm Kavanaugh

After reviewing the record of decisions he argued for and against, I believe Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an excellent choice to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Kavanaugh understands that the role of a Supreme Court justice is to faithfully interpret the law, rather than to legislate from the bench. The more than 300 judicial opinions Mr. Kavanaugh has written during his time on the Washington, D.C., federal appeals court confirm his credentials as a mainstream jurist who respects the Constitution and who will work to protect our rights in Alaska.

President Donald Trump couldn‘t have picked a better nominee for Alaska, and I encourage Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan to evaluate him on his qualifications and vote to confirm him. I believe Alaskans will benefit by his confirmation to the Supreme Court.
