Local lawmakers are reacting to President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth says if Kavanaugh hopes to earn her support, he must “make it clear to the American public that he would be independent, not simply a rubber stamp for Donald Trump’s whims.” Meanwhile, Senate Democratic Whip Richard Durbin says Kavanaugh is a judge who “consistently favors big business and undermines protections for consumers, workers, women, and the environment.”
