U.S. Senator John Thune says he will confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Thune met with Kavanaugh Wednesday and says he was very impressed by his qualifications and the number of opinions he’s written.
Thune says he is especially interested in Kavanaugh’s positions concerning privacy and technology.
“I think he views that as something that Congress and the court are going to be grappling with in the years ahead because it’s an issue that affects people’s daily lives and one on which, at least right now, there’s not a lot of legislation,” Thune said.
The Judiciary Committee has yet to schedule a hearing for Judge Kavanaugh, however it will likely happen this fall.
