Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), thought to be one of the potential swing voters that will determine whether Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment is approved, said in a statement that he “has impressive credentials and extensive experience, having served more than a decade on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. I will conduct a careful, thorough vetting of the President’s nominee to the Supreme Court, as I have done with the five previous Supreme Court Justices whom I have considered. I look forward to Judge Kavanaugh’s public hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and to questioning him in a meeting in my office.”
