CDP Chair Statement on SCOTUS Nominee

California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement on Trump’s Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh:

“Whatever White House finery Trump is draping his nominee in, there can be no mistake that every vote Brett Kavanaugh casts will be another vote for this thuggish and partisan Supreme Court majority. Votes against women and workers, against People of Color and protecting our planet. They will be votes for a radical partisan agenda to gut decades of precedent and progress. 

There is no limit to the damage Trump’s nominee can do if he makes it to the Court. Historic rulings to protect everything from voting rights to the rights of people with disabilities are now under threat. The right to choose secured by Roe v. Wade, the right for LGBT people to marry secured by Obergefell v. Hodges, and a host of critical rights will be overturned, upending some of our most hard-won victories for progress. 

Democrats in the US Senate must do everything they can to stop this nomination. They should raise every hurdle and employ every delaying tactic they can in order to stop the vote. Grassroots Democrats should mobilize to stop the nomination with every tool at their disposal. And everyday Californians should call their US Senators to voice their opposition to this dreadful Supreme Court choice and all the damage he can do. Democrats must unite to stop this nominee and take back Congress in November.”
