Sen. Baldwin won’t back Trump’s pick for Supreme Court

Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin says she will not support President Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, saying Brett Kavanaugh would "turn back the clock on a woman’s constitutional right and freedom to make her own health care choices."

Baldwin issued a statement Thursday saying she will not vote to confirm Kavanaugh for a seat on the nation’s highest court. She joins with other Democrats in opposing the nomination.
   
Baldwin says in a statement "the people of Wisconsin need a fair, impartial and independent Supreme Court Justice who will stand up for them, not for powerful special interests." She says she doesn’t think Kavanaugh is that justice.
   
Wisconsin’s other senator, Republican Ron Johnson, said earlier this week that he supports Kavanaugh and was looking forward to a quick confirmation.
   
Baldwin is up for re-election in November. Both of the Republicans running for a chance to take her on support Kavanaugh.
