On Wednesday night, Gov. John Kasich sent out a statement calling for the U.S. Senate to delay voting on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for Supreme Court Justice.
Here’s Gov. Kasich’s full statement:
"Given the questions and allegations surrounding Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination – and the higher standards demanded for a lifetime appointment – the United States Senate should not rush to confirm him.
In the absence of a complete and thorough investigation, and hearing from all parties involved, moving this nomination forward would be a mistake. In the best interest of our country and the integrity of the court, the Senate needs to hold on this confirmation. Without an investigation, and with so many serious issues involved, I can’t support this nomination if they choose to move forward."
