US Senator John Kennedy talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the state of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the conformation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

In referring to the tumultuous nature of the hearings, which have been continually disrupted by left-wing protesters, Kennedy says that he still was surprised by the level of their dissent: "I knew that those opposed to Judge Kavanaugh were going to be vociferous in their opposition...but when that (protests from the gallery) happens two hundred plus times over three days, I mean, it's very disruptive."

Kennedy also says that, despite Democrat attempts at obstruction, that Kavanaugh will be confirmed by his committee along party lines and move to the Senate floor for a vote he expects to take place before the end of the month. "I think he'll be confirmed," the junior Senator says, "And he'll get my vote. I've seen him in action and I'm voting for him. The guy's as good as I've ever seen...this guy's really good."
