ALGOP Statement on the Kavanaugh Confirmation Cloture Vote

Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan made the following statement regarding the vote to end debate on Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation:

“The Alabama Republican Party is very supportive of today’s vote now allowing Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to come to a full floor vote in the U.S. Senate. We have the utmost respect for Judge Kavanaugh as he has endured baseless and slanderous attacks on his character from the left. We deeply appreciate Senator Shelby’s yes vote today along with his careful consideration of the requests of Alabamians who want to see this confirmation move forward.”

“It is an absolute shame Senator Doug Jones chose to vote no and deny the pleas and calls of his constituents who clearly want to see Judge Kavanaugh confirmed. In 2020 the voters will hold Senator Jones responsible for continually ignoring the will of Alabamians and instead choosing to follow the bidding of Democrat leadership.”
