VIDEO: Senator Portman & Judge Kavanaugh, Longtime Friends

July 17, 2018 | Press Releases

Last week, President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) met with Judge Kavanaugh and later delivered remarks on the Senate floor praising him, his impressive background and exceptional qualifications, as well as his character, compassion, and humility. Portman has known Judge Kavanaugh for more than 15 years, since they worked together in the George W. Bush administration. 

Portman states in the video: “I have known him for over 15 years. I worked with him in the George W. Bush White House. Brett Kavanaugh is a person I have gotten to know, not so much as a legal scholar and judge but as a friend and watched him as a father and as a husband. He’s a guy with great compassion, great humility, and a big heart. I can’t think of anybody better qualified to be on the United States Supreme Court.”
