O’Toole: Bauman, Hanna Should Be Confirmed Immediately

Senator: Majority Party Lacks Regard For, Credibility to Discuss the State Constitution

Judiciary Committee Member Senator Kevin O’Toole concluded the following after spending several hours interviewing New Jersey Supreme Court nominees David Bauman and Robert Hanna, as well as dissecting their legal experiences and opinions:

“I have met with and interviewed both Judge Bauman and BPU President Hanna. I am impressed by their intelligence, professionalism, and demeanor, not to mention their extraordinary credentials.


"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
