After some vacillating on whether he would support President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, in true Rand Paul (R-KY) form, the senator announced Monday that he would support the conservative judge’s nomination.

In a tweet on Monday, Paul said he felt comfortable supporting Kavanaugh after meeting with him in person. He said he was still concerned about the judge’s record on issues like warrantless data collection, but felt that Kavanaugh would adhere to the Constitution.

Paul, who said last week that he was “honestly undecided” on Kavanaugh, is well known for waffling on key conservative issues and gaining media attention for his wavering, only to predictably vote along party lines, like he did most recently in the confirmation of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state.
