Carrie Severino: Trump judicial nominee Kyle Duncan ‘has been a champion in defending the Constitution’


by JCN | November 29th, 2017

Statement from Judicial Crisis Network’s Chief Counsel and Policy Director, Carrie Severino:

“President Trump continues to nominate exceptionally well-qualified candidates to the courts. Throughout his legal career, Kyle Duncan has been a champion in defending the Constitution and adhering to the law. His career has been a showcase for the types of judges the people of Louisiana and across the country voted for when they voted overwhelmingly for President Trump on the judges issue.

“It is widely acknowledged that Trump’s nominees are extraordinary, and Duncan, in particular, has received widespread support from national conservative leaders and elected officials as well as from basically everyone in Louisiana except Senator Kennedy.  Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry today called Duncan ‘the Neil Gorsuch of Louisiana.’  The people of Louisiana are waiting to find out if Senator Kennedy stands with them and President Trump or liberal special interest groups in Washington.”

Background:

ABC poll: “Nationally, 21 percent of voters call appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court “the most important factor” in their decision, preliminary exit polls indicate. These voters overwhelmingly favor Trump, 57 to 40 percent.”

2016 Louisiana Election Results: Trump 58.1% over Clinton 38.4%
