Vice President Mike Pence, in a speech to a meeting of the Republican National Lawyers Association on Friday, touted the credentials and personality of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and lambasted Democrats for opposing his nomination.

“I can’t tell you how impressed I was with this man for others,” Pence told the crowd. “Beyond the extraordinary career and the extraordinary intellect and the extraordinary record of this judge, you find a character and a humility combined with strength that left me profoundly impressed.”

The vice president called Kavanaugh a “devoted” family man and an active member of his community.

Pence recounted that the judge showed up to work at a soup kitchen two days after President Trump nominated him for a seat on the Supreme Court.

But Democrats and the media are working to sink Kavanaugh’s nomination, he said, citing the ridiculous oppo hits on the judge. Pence called on the Senate to live up to its constitutional obligations and stop its practice of “obstruct and oppose.”
