U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Statement on Confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court
"Judge Kavanaugh has proven that he lacks the judicial temperament to serve on America’s highest court and I do not believe he will provide the independence we need on our Supreme Court at this time."
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following the final vote on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement:
“The people of Wisconsin need a fair, non-partisan and independent Supreme Court Justice and based on everything we know, I do not have confidence that Judge Kavanaugh would be that justice.
“The stakes are too high for the American people, who do not want the Supreme Court to advance a political agenda to overturn the law of the land on health care for people with pre-existing conditions, women’s reproductive health and the constitutional rights and freedoms of all Americans.
“Judge Kavanaugh has proven that he lacks the judicial temperament to serve on America’s highest court and I do not believe he will provide the independence we need on our Supreme Court at this time. That is why I opposed his confirmation to the United States Supreme Court.”
