Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s high school classmates wrote a letter supporting his nomination to the Supreme Court that was sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday night.

“Whether as a clerk for judges in both the Third and the Ninth Circuits, a clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, a U.S. Solicitor General Fellow, or a U.S. Justice Department lawyer, Brett’s defining characteristics were his sharp intellectual ability, affable nature, and a practical and fair approach devoid of partisan purpose,” the letter said.

It continued, “Although some may use the confirmation process as a rallying cry for advancing deeply and honestly held beliefs for many groups in our country, we earnestly ask you to rise above the passions and examine who Brett Kavanaugh is.”

President Trump announced his selection of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Monday night. He will try to get confirmed to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy who announced his retirement at the end of last month. (RELATED: PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SUPREME COURT PICK IS IN)

The letter was organized by Michael Bidwill, the owner of the Arizona Cardinals,  a classmate of Kavanaugh’s at Georgetown Prep. It was also signed by Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman, among a total of twelve people.
