Kentucky Democrat Amy McGrath reversed course Wednesday night on whether she would have voted for Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, just a day after launching her campaign to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
McGrath tweeted that she would have voted against Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court, after saying in an interview with the Louisville Courier-Journal earlier in the day that she “probably would have voted for him.”…
McGrath had weighed in on the Kavanaugh controversy at the time the allegations of his past conduct emerged.
“I echo the concerns over the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh. He’s been against women’s reproductive rights, workers’ rights, consumer protections, and is a hardcore partisan,” she tweeted in July 2018. “But we are reminded, again, that elections have consequences, and this will be with us for a generation.”
