Minnesota lawmakers and candidates weighed in on Twitter on Saturday afternoon after the Senate voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Senate has spoken. Now the people can. Vote November 6.— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) October 6, 2018
Take a moment and remember this feeling of seeing a hand-picked right-wing judge nominated to the Supreme Court. Take that feeling & re-commit to this fight. Channel your rage & sadness into the midterms. We can win on our values. pic.twitter.com/TyJUb2Ci7F— Tina Smith (@TinaSmithMN) October 6, 2018
When radical politicians like Tina Smith declare Kavanaugh ‘committed sexual assault’ w/o due process, it allows anger, fear & bitterness to become primary motivation. Such blatant partisanship divides us & that’s not how we do things in Minnesota. https://t.co/pMwYsVK8rD #mnsen— Karin Housley (@KarinHousley) October 6, 2018

Across the nation, we’re seeing promises made and kept by Republicans. The stakes could not be higher now for MN.
We must continue to move Minnesota forward.#MNGov#OverthrowTheStatusQuo pic.twitter.com/sq5gYF3Jcd
Today is hard. Kavanaugh's confirmation is a punch in the gut to survivors across our country, and will have far-reaching consequences for years to come. We cannot lose hope. While Washington tries to take us backward, we can take Minnesota forward.— Peggy Flanagan (Untamed) (@peggyflanagan) October 6, 2018
