Dover, NH – Eddie Edwards, the Republican nominee for New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District, issued the following statement in response to Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court:
“We have finally moved beyond a very divisive U.S. Supreme Court confirmation process. One full of harsh allegations riddled with partisan rhetoric from career politicians with the singular goal of dividing our nation even further. We deserve so much better than this.
“As many of you know, I grew up in a difficult household where my mother suffered at the hands of my father. Throughout my years in law enforcement, I saw far too many victims who were harmed by oppressors. I will always fight for their rights. However, as I have said from the beginning, I also believe in due process. After all of the many investigations, questionings, and hearings, the U.S. Senate arrived at the right decision to confirm Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. I am confident that he will be a strong constitutionalist who will ensure that the vision our Founding Fathers outlined many generations ago will continue to be the guiding light for our nation.”
