LIST: The 31 Governors, Representing 162M People, Supporting Brett Kavanaugh for SCOTUS

This week, 31 governors of the United States and its territories signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in support of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s elevation to the Supreme Court.

The letter reads, in part:

“As governors, we stand in support of President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and encourage the United States Senate to move expeditiously to confirm his appointment as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. We make this request based on his track record of upholding the Constitution and his distinguished credentials that eminently qualify him to serve on the nation’s highest court.”

The governors represent 29 of the 50 U.S. states, and two U.S. territories (Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands).

More impressively, the governors of the 29 states represent nearly half of the U.S. population, or around 162 million people, according to 2017 U.S. Census data.
