Ganim Statement On The Nomination Of Brett Kavanaugh To The U.S. Supreme Court

BRIDGEPORT – Bridgeport Mayor and Democratic candidate for governor Joe Ganim issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Judge Kavanaugh is exactly the wrong person for the nation’s highest court. If this right wing appointee is confirmed, a woman’s right to choose under Roe v. Wade, LGBTQ rights, collective bargaining, and the rights of persons with preexisting illness to obtain affordable health care will all be in jeopardy. As governor, I would lead the effort to oppose any attempt to turn back the clock on these important rights.”
