U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez didn’t wait long to attack Bob Hugin over the latter’s support of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
“Hugin is a coward who tries to duck, dodge and mislead New Jerseyans, only to reveal himself with his support of Brett Kavanaugh as the true Trump-loving extreme conservative he is,” Menendez said Friday. “Hugin talks a good game on issues like choice but backs Supreme Court nominees like Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch who have been vetted to make sure they’ll overturn Roe v. Wade.”
Hugin had largely remained silent of Kavanaugh, even as the nominee faced allegations of sexual assault and misconduct. But, on Thursday, Hugin told the New Jersey Globe that he would vote to support Kavanaugh unless the results of the FBI’s reopened investigation revealed something he found troubling.
Hugin, like all member of the public, has not seen the results of that investigation.
Menendez called it a “bullshit investigation.”
