Cortez Masto Statement on President Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement that he has nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the seat on the Supreme Court being vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy:

“President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court will hold immense power over the most critical issues facing our nation, including a woman’s right to choose, protection for those with preexisting conditions, LGBTQ rights, money in politics, and workers’ rights. We need a Justice who respects the rights and freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, not someone who is beholden to special interest groups. I plan to meet with Judge Kavanaugh in the coming months and will review his qualifications thoroughly.”
