He asked questions of Kavanaugh about the judge’s record and views on everything from workers’ rights, to women’s rights, consumer rights, and health care. Brown’s office said he is continuing to carefully examine Kavanaugh’s record before making a final decision on how he will vote.
“I’m already very troubled by the Supreme Court’s recent decisions stripping rights from Ohioans, and I have serious concerns about some of Judge Kavanaugh’s rulings and positions on health care for Ohioans with pre-existing conditions, and the rights of Ohio workers, women, and consumers,”Brown said.“I am continuing to listen to Ohioans and review Judge Kavanagh’s record as I make my final decision.”
