Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-Teaneck) wants to know how Bob Hugin would vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination for Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
In a statement released today, Weinberg says that Hugin, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, needs to tell New Jersey how he would vote if he were in the Senate.
“Does he stand for New Jersey values or does he stand for Donald Trump? Does he stand for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community, voters and workers?” Weinberg asked. “Does he stand in support of a woman’s right to choose? Does he stand for protecting our environment, our air, and water, from polluters? Does he stand for sensible gun safety reform? These are New Jersey values, and they are all threatened if the balance of power shifts on the Supreme Court.”
Weinberg called Kavanaugh an “extreme conservative who will tilt the balance of our nation’s highest court to the hard right and impact American lives for generations.”
“The stakes are too high for Bob Hugin to stay quiet. His silence is deafening,” said Weinberg.
