U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement regarding Thursday’s hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Brown previously announced his opposition to Judge Kavanaugh in August.
“Dr. Ford’s courage is inspiring and I am very grateful to her for coming forward to tell her story, even in the face of deep personal cost. She was moving, heartfelt and honest,” said Brown. “While I had already decided not to support Judge Kavanaugh based on his history of siding with corporations and Wall Street over workers, Dr. Ford’s testimony today was a powerful moment for our country.”
