Santorum on Kavanaugh: Trump 'Bowed' to Washington Elite

Former Sen. Rick Santorum is less than dazzled by President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

"I think that Donald Trump said he was going to energize the base with this pick. I don't think he did that," Santorum, a Pennsylvania Republican and a 2012 candidate for president, told CNN's Chris Cuomo.

"I think a lot of the folks at the base really were sort of turned off to Brett Kavanaugh for the same reasons you discussed a few minutes ago. He is from Washington. He is the establishment pick. He is the Bush pick. His father was a judge. His mother was a judge.

"It just seems like Trump in this case just bowed to the elite in Washington. I think that's going to rub a lot of people the wrong way. I don't think it's going to be a game changer."

According to Raw Story, Kavanaugh's father, Everett Kavanaugh Jr., is a retired attorney, and was never appointed as a judge.
