Kavanaugh Sworn In, Rosendale Rallies in Billings
Judge Brett Kavanaugh is now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, after taking his oath of office on Saturday in Washington, DC.
The final confirmation happened around 2 PM Montana time on Saturday, ahead of a 2:30 PM rally scheduled by the campaign of Republican Senate candidate Matt Rosendale.
Earlier reports that I read in Politico's Playbook anticipated a 3PM Montana time vote. So what was planned as a rally supporting Judge Kavanaugh in Billings, quickly turned into a victory celebration. On the stage alongside Rosendale was Judge Russ Fagg, Rosendale's former primary election opponent. Fagg says he proudly endorses Rosendale for the US Senate, and touted Judge Kavanaugh's credentials for the bench.
Tune in to Montana Talks with Aaron Flint on Monday morning for reaction to the Kavanaugh confirmation vote by both Russ Fagg and Matt Rosendale.
