Hoeven Statement on President’s Supreme Court Nominee

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven released the following statement today after the President nominated federal appeals court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. The senator was at the White House tonight with the president as he announced the nomination.
