WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), the first Senator to register his opposition to her nomination, today reacted to the 63-37 Senate confirmation of Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court.
“I am disappointed that the Senate confirmed Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court,” Inhofe said. “I have been very clear from the very outset of her nomination why I opposed her. Her disdain for our military, her views on civilian trials for terrorists, her position on abortion, her disregard for the second amendment, and her lack of judicial experience are each and of themselves reasons enough to vote against her. While it is unfortunate for the President to nominate a partisan political operative to a lifetime appointment, she is replacing someone as equally liberal.”
