Cardin Statement on Judge Kavanaugh’s Confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.) released the following statement regarding today’s confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court:

“Today is a difficult day for our country. For those of us who believe Judge Kavanaugh lacks the impartiality and judicial temperament to serve on our nation’s highest court – and who fear how his opinions will shape the future of reproductive rights, health care, and other key issues – it is easy and understandable to feel disheartened. What’s more, these past few weeks I have heard from many brave survivors of sexual assault, and for them, I know today isn’t just difficult. It’s painful. I share these sentiments. I am profoundly disappointed in the outcome of today’s vote.”
