WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) issued the following statement today in response to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

“I’m already very troubled by the Supreme Court’s recent decisions stripping rights from Ohioans, and I have serious concerns about some of Judge Kavanaugh’s rulings against women’s rights and consumer rights,” Brown said. “I plan to review Judge Kavanaugh’s record thoroughly and ask him tough questions face-to-face before I make my decision. I will not support any Justice who would take rights away from Ohioans.”
