U.S. Congressman Albio Sires calls out Bob Hugin on his silence regarding POTUS nomination of Brett Kavanaugh:
(Jersey City, NJ) – U.S. Congressman Albio Sires calls out Bob Hugin on his silence regarding POTUS nomination of Brett Kavanaugh:
“Bob Hugin has stayed silent on the issue of President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. If he wants to represent the people of New Jersey, he needs to answer the question of whether or not he would support Trump’s nominee,” stated US Congressman Albio Sires.
“Brett Kavanaugh is a partisan choice who would push his conservative agenda and swing the Supreme Court to the hard-right. He would endanger the rights of women, workers, immigrants, and the LGBTQ community. Kavanaugh’s appointment would put Roe v. Wade, the Affordable Care Act, and consumer protections in jeopardy. Too much is at stake for Bob Hugin to keep quiet on his positions on these issues. Hugin needs to come clean on Kavanaugh, and tell us whether he stands with Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, or with the people of New Jersey.”
