Wrong for Minnesota

Jeff Johnson wouldn’t stand up to Brett Kavanaugh, and Minnesotans would suffer the consequences

The Supreme Court has the power to enact significant and long-lasting changes to Americans’ lives, so it’s critical that Supreme Court appointees are judges who keep the rights and best interests of hardworking people in mind. Brett Kavanaugh is not one of those judges. Picked from a list of far-right extremists from the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society, Kavanaugh would undermine the Affordable Care Act, women’s access to abortion care, LGBTQ rights, voting rights, and much more.

Compared to many states, Minnesota has historically been a place where our rights are protected. Minnesota’s laws are not as restrictive when it comes to ensuring women’s access to safe abortion. Minnesotans voted against a proposed voter ID amendment that would have made it harder for many people to vote. And same-sex couples have been able to marry in Minnesota since 2013, two years before equal marriage rights were made the law of the land by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015.

State leaders are Minnesota’s last line of defense against Trump and a Trump-stacked Supreme Court. So if Kavanaugh were appointed, would Minnesotans be protected? Not if Jeff Johnson has anything to say about it.

Jeff Johnson is a Kavanaugh supporter who would waste no time in putting Kavanaugh’s disastrous rulings into practice if elected governor. Johnson has already said that if elected governor, he would sign some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation. We can’t let that happen. Fight back by donating today, and together we’ll work to elect a governor who will protect Minnesota from Trump’s terrible supreme court picks.
