Judicial nominations should be treated the same regardless of which party controls the White House or the U.S. Senate. I look forward to reviewing the backgrounds and qualifications of all of the judicial nominees sent to the U.S. Senate for consideration. I believe that these nominees should abide by and apply the rule of law, instead of becoming activist judges who try to create law. I take very seriously the role that the U.S. Senate has when it comes to the Constitutional responsibility of "advise and consent" concerning judicial nominees.
