The Early Years
Kavanaugh was born in Washington, D.C., but raised in Maryland. He got his start as a judge by working as a law clerk for figures like Judge Walter King Stapleton of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and Judge Alex Kozinski of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Afterward, he also served as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. During this time, he also served a one-year fellowship with Ken Starr, the Solicitor General of the United States; he would later serve as an Associate Counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel under Starr.
During the administration of President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh served as Senior Associate Counsel and Associate Counsel to the President for two years. By 2003, he served as an Assistant to the President and White House Staff Secretary. The same year, President George W. Bush first nominated Kavanaugh to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. By 2006, the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary recommended confirmation, essentially confirming Kavanaugh to the court. In early June of that year, he was sworn in by Justice Anthony Kennedy, for whom he previously served as a clerk.
In 2018, after Justice Anthony Kennedy, with whom Kavanaugh had worked with, announced his retirement, Kavanaugh was one of four circuit judges interviewed by President Donald Trump himself to succeed Kennedy. By July 9, 2018, President Trump announced Kavanaugh as his nominee for a seat on the Supreme Court.
