Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin says Brett Kavanaugh has "all the right qualities" to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Manchin's comments regarding President Donald Trump's nominee to the high court came during an interview on West Virginia's MetroNews' "Talkline" radio show on Wednesday.

An excerpt of the interview is posted on the MetroNews Twitter account.

"He has all the right qualities," Manchin said. "He's well-educated and, with that, we have to just look at making sure that the rule of law and the Constitution is going to be followed and that's going to basically preempt anything else he does."

Still, Manchin stressed he has not made a decision on whether to support Kavanaugh and will base it on the nominee's testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and personal meetings with him.

"I intend to have two meetings with him – one before his hearing, one after his hearing – and then make my decision based on that," Manchin said.

The Washington Examiner noted Manchin is up for re-election in a state carried by Trump in 2016. He is facing pressure from conservative groups to back the nomination.
