Senator Chuck Schumer is speaking out against President Trump's new nominee for the Supreme Court. In a Twitter message last night, Schumer said Brett Kavanaugh's background shows he'll rule against reproductive rights and freedoms, and put healthcare for millions of Americans at risk. Schumer also announced he'll fight Kavanaugh's confirmation. Kavanaugh is looking to take over for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.
I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same. The stakes are simply too high for anything less.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) July 10, 2018
