The Latest on President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court

Kansas elected officials Monday night voiced support for President Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

What they've had to say:

Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer 

“I could not be more thrilled that President Trump has selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the Supreme Court. For the first time in a long time we will have a majority of constitutional conservatives on the Supreme Court, who will defend liberty and adhere to the constitution as written. The Senate should move quickly to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to fill Justice Kennedy’s seat."

Sen. Pat Robers 

Congrats to Judge Kavanaugh on his nomination to the #SCOTUS. I take my responsibility of 'advice and consent' very seriously & look forward to the @senjudiciary's thorough vetting of his record. I look forward to mtg Judge Kavanaugh & hope for a fair confirmation process.

Sen. Jerry Moran 

“As a former Supreme Court clerk for Justice Kennedy and current Judge for the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals since 2006, Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a well-qualified nominee with extensive experience in the legal field. In the coming weeks, I will review Judge Kavanaugh’s body of legal writing and meet with him to discuss his interpretation of the law and make certain he will be a steadfast defender of our constitution.”
