Statement from the Democratic Attorneys General Association on President Trump’s Nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court

July 10, 2018

Washington, D.C.— In response to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, the Democratic Attorneys General Association (@DemocraticAGs) released the following statement from co-chair Oregon AG Ellen Rosenblum.


“We know that Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh was selected from a list created and shaped by activist groups that have made clear their priority to attack Roe v. Wade and the Affordable Care Act.  We urge our leaders in the U.S. Senate to carefully and thoroughly vet Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination and ensure the truth about his  views are publicly exposed.  We must not place the future of healthcare, reproductive freedoms, LGBTQ rights, workers’ rights, affirmative action, and other fundamental rights of our people in the hands of someone who ‘checks the boxes’ of the most extreme agenda.”

“We are the lawyers that serve the people—and the majority of the people in our states and across the country support Roe and the ACA.  We will continue to fight to protect the freedoms our families and communities value most. Today, we call on the U.S. Senate to do the same.”

Our democracy can't wait.
