(SAN FRANCISCO, October 6, 2018)—Need to Impeach and NextGen America Founder Tom Steyer released the below statement following today’s Senate floor vote confirming Brett Kavanaugh as a Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Donald Trump and the Republican leadership have sent a clear message to the American people: ‘Your voices don’t matter.’ An angry and vindictive partisan—one who is accused ofsexually assaulting multiple women and clearly misled Senate leaders under oath—is now on the U.S. Supreme Court. Brett Kavanaugh will be able to dictate the rights and freedoms of millions of Americans, and may very well determine the fate of the president who is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice. This is a disgraceful act that voters must remember as they cast their ballots on November 6.”

Steyer launched the Need to Impeach campaign on October 20, 2017, through national television and social media ads. More than 5.9 million people have since signed on to support the campaign, creating a digital army that several political strategists call one of the most powerful political tools in the Democratic party. So far, 15 national commercials—including two in Spanish—have aired, reaching more than two billion television viewers and more than 454 million people through social media.
