McCarthy responds to Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement
Bakersfield Congressman and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy issued the following statement in response to the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.
 
“Justice Anthony Kennedy was a thoughtful jurist whose decisions have had a remarkable impact on our nation. As a son of Sacramento, Justice Kennedy is an example of the great heights that Californians are capable of ascending. I know many Californians take inspiration from his example.
 
I thank Justice Kennedy for his three decades of service to our country, and wish him a well-earned retirement. I trust President Trump and the Republican Senate will move expeditiously to fill the High Court’s vacant seat with a Justice who will decide cases based on the text of the Constitution and the rule of law.”
