Bennet Statement on Judge Kavanaugh’s Nomination

Washington, D.C. – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today released the following statement on the President’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“When Justice Kennedy announced his retirement, I urged the President to appoint a consensus nominee who could earn broad bipartisan support in the Senate and the confidence of the American people. Instead, he chose a nominee whose ideology would shift the Court's majority, thereby threatening fundamental rights and failing to check executive power. As a result, I have grave concerns about this nomination.”
