McCaskill: Kavanaugh Qualified to Be On the Supreme Court

"The first [part of my test] is do they have the resume? Do they have the just straight-out qualifications? I believe that Judge Kavanaugh does."

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said on Monday that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has the qualifications necessary to serve on the Supreme Court.

McCaskill made the comments during a campaign event in Kansas City.

“So there are two parts at looking at a nominee for the Supreme Court. The first is do they have the resume? Do they have the just straight-out qualifications? I believe that Judge Kavanaugh does,” McCaskill said.

These comments by McCaskill come as her fellow Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee attempt to paint Kavanaugh as unfit for the high court.

For McCaskill, who is considered one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2018, support for Kavanaugh may be necessary if she’s to have a chance at saving her Senate seat.
