(Business Insider)— President Donald Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
“There is no one in America more qualified for this position, and no one more deserving,” Trump said of Kavanaugh on Monday night.
Trump announced his pick fewer than two weeks after Kennedy said he would end his 30-year career on the bench. This is Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee. His first, Justice Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed to the high court in April 2017.
The 53-year-old Kavanaugh has sat on the Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit since 2006. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justices Clarence Thomas and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, served on the same court.
