RACINE, WI — Today, Randy Bryce released the following statement on Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s Associate Justice Supreme Court nominee.
“Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and the GOP played political games to steal a Supreme Court seat from the American people. The people of Wisconsin and the nation elected President Obama to a second term. We cast our votes to see his Supreme Court nominees confirmed and seated. Donald Trump is politicizing the court and dividing the country. He did it with the nomination of Neil Gorsuch and now he is doing it again with Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Another conservative on the court will have devastating effects on the progress made for all Americans. The reality is Roe v. Wade, LGBTQ rights, environmental protections, campaign finance reform, workers’ rights and the future direction of the United States are all at stake with the President’s latest nomination to the court. As Americans and Wisconsin’s working people we must do everything we can to prevent Judge Kavanaugh from taking Trump’s divisive agenda to the most powerful court in the country. We must right a wrong and seat Judge Merrick Garland instead of Brett Kavanaugh.”
