Brookfield, Wis. — U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir issued the following statement Thursday following the Senate Judiciary hearing:
“Both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh deserved to be heard, and I’m grateful the Judiciary Committee held today’s hearing.
“Only 48 hours after his nomination, Senator Baldwin opposed Judge Kavanaugh, and today we learned her Democratic colleagues knew of these allegations for weeks, deliberately withheld them from the public, and leaked them for political gain.
“The fact is Senator Baldwin and her liberal allies are bitter that Wisconsin elected President Trump, and they’ll do anything to stop this highly qualified nominee.
“It’s time the Senate votes and confirms Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate who is running to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington. She currently serves as a state senator from Brookfield.
