Kavanaugh Vote Delayed, Boozman Calls Some Actions ‘Shameless’

U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., said the one week delay on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination vote is a “good faith effort,” but said the actions of some senators have been “shameless.” U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., did not send out an official comment after Friday’s surprise turn of events in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

President Donald Trump on July 9 nominated Kavanaugh to replace retiring U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Kavanaugh, 53, is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He is a former law clerk for Justice Kennedy and was a senior associate counsel to President George W. Bush. Kavanaugh was confirmed to the D.C. Circuit in 2006.    MORE
