Take a moment and remember this feeling of seeing a hand-picked right-wing judge nominated to the Supreme Court. Take that feeling & re-commit to this fight. Channel your rage & sadness into the midterms. We can win on our values. pic.twitter.com/TyJUb2Ci7F

We witnessed a powerful movement that ignited long-overdue, passionate conversations. We also witnessed a shameful attempt to exploit the #MeToo mvmnt for partisan gain. We will continue to have these conversations, but won't allow mob rule to undermine our rights & freedoms. 2/

Congratulations to Brett Kavanaugh on his confirmation to the Supreme Court!
Across the nation, we’re seeing promises made and kept by Republicans. The stakes could not be higher now for MN.

Today is hard. Kavanaugh's confirmation is a punch in the gut to survivors across our country, and will have far-reaching consequences for years to come. We cannot lose hope. While Washington tries to take us backward, we can take Minnesota forward.
