Jacky Rosen Statement on Justice Kennedy Retiring from the Supreme Court

Nevada Congresswoman and candidate for U.S. Senate Jacky Rosen released the following statement after Justice Anthony Kennedy’s announced retirement from the Supreme Court:

“The future of the Supreme Court is in play, and the outcome will have a major impact for generations on issues that matter to Nevadans, like health care and women’s reproductive rights. Another Supreme Court justice backed by President Trump could jeopardize Roe v. Wade, undermine coverage protections for people with pre-existing conditions, threaten workers’ rights, perpetuate the damage of big money in our political system, and so much more. Up until now, Sen. Heller has never voted against a major nominee put forward by President Trump. Nevadans deserve a Senator who will fight to protect their health care and reproductive rights, not be a rubber stamp for his party leaders in Washington.”
