On Tuesday afternoon, Democratic nominee for governor Ned Lamont released a statement regarding conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing before the United States Senate Judiciary Committee.
“As the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee begins to consider the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, it’s important to remember where he stands on the values that are important to Connecticut residents – protections for women’s rights, civil rights, LGBTQ rights, workers’ rights and access to healthcare in our nation," Lamont said."
"I applaud Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s efforts to block this nomination."
In Connecticut, Lamont said voters deserve to know where Republican nominee for governor Bob Stefanowski stands on these issues.
"Will he stand up to protect and strengthen Connecticut values, or will he allow women’s rights and civil rights to be rolled back," Lamont said. "President Trump’s nomination of Judge Kavanaugh is another stark reminder that we must remain focused on November.
"Every choice voters make at the polls will have consequences.”
