WASHINGTON D.C. (News4Utah)- Utah Senators Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch have both officially met with Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh’s been meeting with members with key Republican senators as Democrats ramped up efforts to block his confirmation.
Sen. Lee met Kavanaugh Wednesday.
“It was a pleasure meeting Judge Kavanaugh today,” Sen. Lee said. “His insight into the current state of the law and the constitution shows he is just the kind of originalist jurist we need on the Court.”
Sen. Hatch met him last week. Wednesday the senator spoke about Kavanaugh on the Senate Floor.
He had some strong words for Democrats saying “Crying wolf is the Left’s trademark strategy in attempts to sabotage Republican nominees,” he said later adding, “We’re only nine days into the confirmation process, and progressive opposition is already beyond parody.”
