McCaskill to oppose nomination of Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

WASHINGTON (KFVS) - U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill has decided to vote no on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“I have been thorough in examining Judge Kavanaugh’s record. And while the recent allegations against him are troubling and deserve a thorough and fair examination by the Senate Judiciary Committee, my decision is not based on those allegations but rather on his positions on several key issues, most importantly the avalanche of dark, anonymous money that is crushing our democracy.
Sen. Claire McCaskill

McCaskill has not revealed her stance on Judge Kavanaugh until Wednesday, Sept. 19. The senator is locked in a closely watched midterm race with Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley.
