Saturday, just hours after Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, there were mixed reactions about the newest supreme court justice.

"It just didn't seem like there was enough stuff against him," said Jansen Coulter.
"He was lying right to congress," said Jeanne Rodes.

Those mixed feelings extended to Capitol Hill.

Senator Richard Shelby said after the vote, “I voted today to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who has devoted 26 years of public service to our nation as a jurist, lawyer, and professor."

Senator Doug Jones, who voted with the democrats and said 'no' on Kavanaugh's confirmation, said the night before the vote, "by leveling unnecessary and inappropriate, partisan attacks demonstrating a temperament that is unbecoming of a siting judge, much less a supreme court nominee."

Regardless of their opinion, a lot of people were focused on what this confirmation could mean for future generations.
