Inslee on CNN: ‘Our candidates are pushing their opponents on this Kavanaugh nomination’

In Governors Races, Republicans on Defensive over Kavanaugh

Last night, on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, DGA Chair Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA) discussed how Democratic gubernatorial candidates are standing up for women in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The sexual assault allegations have “spilled governor’s races across the country,” and Democrats are making clear who they stand with–survivors of sexual assault.
Watch Gov. Inslee on CNN Tonight HERE:

Gov Inslee: “Our candidates are pushing their opponents on this Kavanaugh nomination. Candidates in Oregon, Kate Brown, Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan, they’ve pressed their candidates to stand up and say they feel it’s more important to protect women then to protect Donald Trump. And every single time the Republicans have said ‘Nope, I’d rather protect Donald Trump,’ than the basic dignity of women, and this is causing great outrage, it’s being translated to votes.”
Republicans across the country are struggling and it’s made for some awkward answers and uncomfortable encounters.
In New Hampshire, Molly Kelly called on Gov. Chris Sununu to withdraw his support for Kavanaugh and apologize to women for his support of Kavanaugh. Sununu has, so far, refused, despite the mounting allegations against Kavanaugh.
Bob Stefanowski was on the receiving end of a loud chorus of boos for refusing to take a stand on Kavanaugh. Democrat Ned Lamont has sharply criticized Stefanowski for “taking a pass” on the Kavanaugh question. Watch the boos rain down on Stefanowski HERE:

Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan has defended victims of sexual assault coming forward.  Meanwhile her opponent, Bill Schuette, has not backed down from his endorsement of Kavanaugh.

And in Oregon, Republican Knute Buehler couldn’t even say whether he believed Kavanaugh’s accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Meanwhile Gov. Kate Brown has firmly been on the side of sexual assault survivors.

Gov. Kate Brown (D-OR): “I’m Proud to Stand Up in Support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I Believe Dr. Ford and All Survivors Must Be Heard.”
