September 4: Let’s call it like it is: The Supreme Court is turning itself into a political arm of the Republican Party. They’ve weakened organized labor, upheld Republican gerrymandering, and gutted voting rights laws. Kavanaugh’s confirmation would codify this development for generations to come. We have to do everything we can to stop him. (Fundraising email)

July 24: These are the stakes as we prepare to vote on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, and it is all in service of this very intentional, very deliberate, very planful campaign of sabotage. A year ago this Saturday, the American people got their way and this body decided not to repeal the Affordable Care Act because people liked the fact that 20 million people have insurance, people liked the fact that people with preexisting conditions are protected. That night the American people got their way, but since then, the president and this Congress have been working to undermine it. And the next step in that plan is the elevation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. It's important for us to come down to the floor and explain what the stakes are. (

July 13: Connecticut's two Democratic U.S. senators say they're hopeful there's a chance to block President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh...Sen. Chris Murphy, who's seeking a second term, says the fight is to make sure the court "reflects the values of our nation, reflects the values of our state," including abortion rights and gay marriage. (U.S. News & World Report)

July 9: Brett Kavanaugh is an anti-consumer zealot, an opponent of preexisting condition protections, a critic of abortion rights and access to contraception, a Second Amendment radical, and a bad choice for the Supreme Court. Not a close call. I will vote NO. (Twitter)
