Several Democratic senators are coming off the fence to announce they will oppose President Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.), Maggie Hassan (N.H.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.) became the latest Democrats to say they will vote against Kavanaugh. Both senators announced their opposition on Monday.
“While much of Judge Kavanaugh’s record remains a mystery, what we do know is extremely troubling and dangerously out of step with the American people, particularly on critical issues including executive power, abortion rights and pre-existing conditions,” Shaheen said in a statement.
When is Kavanaugh supposed to be sworn in?
