WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) released the following statement after Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to serve as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court:
“Over the past several weeks, so many Maine people – particularly women – have shared with me their stories about how they have been affected by this nomination fight. All I can say to them today is that we cannot give up hope. The work is not over; it is just beginning.”
Senator King originally announced his opposition to Judge Kavanaugh in September, before the allegations against him were made public, and earlier this week released a statement reaffirming his opposition to the nomination after reviewing the FBI’s supplementary background investigation into Judge Kavanaugh. Last night, he spoke on the Senate floor to lay out his arguments against Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
