BILLINGS – State Auditor Matt Rosendale and Republican Senate candidate called the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court a “historic day.”
Rosendale is challenging Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., in the November election.
Rosendale supporters met for a “Confirm Kavanaugh Rally” at Lonewolf Energy on Saturday afternoon.
The Republican candidate talked about upholding the U.S. Constitution.
Rosendale said many people spend too much time in Washington, and if elected he plans on serving only two terms.
He says the Kavanaugh confirmation was important for nominations by President Trump and future presidents.
“The Supreme Court now is going to be returned back to playing a role of interpreting the Constitution as the founders had written it,” Rosendale said. “And not as per some new progressive agenda that somebody wants to try and implement going forward.“
Former Yellowstone County District Judge Russ Fagg, who opposed Rosendale in the GOP primary, introduced Rosendale and gave his support.
Fagg also talked about Kavanaugh.
“Judge Kavanaugh has been through nine FBI investigations and they found no corroborating evidence for any of these supposed actions that happened 36 years ago,” Fagg said. “And so I absolutely believe the United States Senate has done the right thing in confirming Judge Kavanaugh.”
“I’m just really, really proud of Judge Kavanaugh and his family for sticking in there, hanging in there and enduring this process,” Rosendale said.
