This week has certainly been a dynamic week with the Kavanaugh hearings in DC and the political campaigns happening both in Delaware and across the country.  This weeks events have shown us that each time we cast our vote, regardless of the office, it has a great impact on both our state and our nation. Also, we have learned the impact that the people we are unable to vote for have on our lives as well.

My friend, next week will prove to be yet another dynamic week. We have the continuation of the Kavanaugh nomination hearings, and there are many events planned around it. Any appointment to the Supreme Court must be carefully considered, however, Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination brought with it additional hurdles; sexual assault allegations.  As a result, many survivors of sexual assault, as well as their allies, have stepped forward to demand due process in the proceedings. Thankfully, it was decided on Friday that an FBI investigation will happen, so we must keep up the pressure.

Delaware will continue to fight alongside those standing against the appointment of Kavanaugh, not just because of these allegations, but because he has a history of rulings which cast doubt on his likelihood to protect our civil and Constitutional rights. As a result, we have a series of events happening both in Delaware and in DC to support the efforts to stop Kavanaugh’s appointment
