(KSLA) - Reaction to President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court is pouring in.
That includes the Louisiana senators who will vote on his confirmation.
Sen. John Kennedy said in a statement:
Sen. Bill Cassidy called Kavanaugh a "solid pick."
Johnson told KSLA News 12 that Kavanaugh is what the country needs - a justice who will interpret the law and not make new law from the bench.
"He has an extensive record that proves he is committed to the principles of originalism, the separation of powers and independent judiciary.
"And I really do believe he is going to restore fidelity to the rule of law."
