Rosen Statement on Heller’s Vote to Confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

Nevada Congresswoman and candidate for U.S. Senate Jacky Rosen released the following statement after Senator Heller voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

“This is a critical lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest court that will directly affect Nevadans for decades to come. Based on his record, I believe Judge Kavanaugh is a threat to the future of women’s reproductive freedom, the Affordable Care Act, consumer protections, campaign finance reform, and our civil rights. The fact that Senator Heller did not have a single reservation about confirming Judge Kavanaugh and even dismissed credible allegations of sexual assault against him as nothing more than ‘a little hiccup’ in the confirmation process shows that he’s clearly out of touch with Nevadans and never had any intention of being an independent voice on this Supreme Court nominee. Voters will hold Senator Heller accountable for becoming just another rubber stamp for President Trump’s nominees and his reckless agenda in Washington.”
