Donald Trump just announced Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court. Let’s get one thing straight, Jeff:
Already this year, the conservative majority on the Supreme Court sanctioned attacks on workers’ rights, further threatened a woman’s right to choose, upheld the discriminatory Muslim ban, and supported voter suppression efforts in Ohio — and that was before Justice Kennedy stepped down. So you better believe that with Brett Kavanaugh on the bench, Roe v. Wade, affordable health care, labor unions, and civil rights will all be on the chopping block.
Regaining a Democratic majority in the Senate is the best way to keep Trump from appointing more far-right conservatives to the Supreme Court. There’s never been a more important time to show you stand with Democrats.
Perhaps the most detrimental and enduring part of Trump’s legacy will be the conservative extremists he appoints to our federal courts. They will be around long after Trump’s presidency ends — and they have the potential to shape our country’s future for generations to come.
Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination is an attack on our values, Jeff. Unless we come together right now to help Democrats take back the Senate, Trump will continue stacking our courts with far-right conservatives. If you’re in this fight, today is a critical time to show it.
Thanks for showing you stand with Democrats.
