Maine Legislators Agree: Brett Kavanaugh is Right for the Supreme Court
State Government Leadership Foundation Launches Multiple Six-Figure Ad in Maine Highlighting Legislative Support for SCOTUS Nominee Kavanaugh
WASHINGTON, DC (September 5, 2018) — The State Government Leadership Foundation began running a multimedia campaign highlighting Maine Republican state legislators’ support for the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
The multiple six-figure multimedia campaign showcases Maine’s Republican legislative members’ description of Kavanaugh as “impeccably qualified,” who has a “strong respect for the independence of the Judicial Branch.” Kavanaugh, a Yale Law School graduate, has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia since 2006, and previously clerked for recently-retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
“Americans deserve judges on our highest courts who are committed to the rule of law, and who will not legislate from the bench,” SGLF Executive Director Matt Walter stated. “Judge Brett Kavanaugh would be an incredible addition to the Supreme Court and I proudly join the Maine legislators who have voiced their support for his confirmation,” Walter added.
The multimedia campaign will include television and digital advertisements across the state and can be seen in full here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSXFCMdakZ4. A script of the ad is listed below.
The more people get to know Judge Brett Kavanaugh – the more they like him.
Kavanaugh treats everyone fairly, always applies the law – just as it was written.
Members of Maine’s Legislature voiced support for Kavanaugh.
They know he’s “impeccably qualified,” committed to the Constitution, and has a “strong respect for the independence of the Judicial Branch.”
Judge Brett Kavanaugh is committed to the law, not politics.
He’s perfect for the Supreme Court.
