Sen. Tim Kaine
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today on his intent to vote against cloture and final confirmation for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:
“After meeting with Judge Gorsuch and reviewing his testimony and past decisions, I’ve observed that he has repeatedly taken an activist approach to cases involving a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her health. He has made the astounding argument that bosses have an individual right to prevent their company’s female employees from using their own health insurance to buy contraception. He has taken extraordinary steps to force reconsideration

Morgan Griffith at WSLS Ch. 10 Debate
Republican Delegate and 9th District candidate for Congress Morgan Griffith is first out of the gate with a press release after WSLS debate Thursday night. Griffith says Boucher’s explanation for voting for Cap and Trade doesn’t wash.
(Roanoke, VA) — At station WSLS’s Candidate Exchange tonight, Congressman Rick Boucher said West Virginia Congressman Nick Rahall was “wrong” about Cap and Trade.
Boucher then failed to explain how an advocate of coal could completely misunderstand the Cap and Trade bill Boucher helped write.
“Congressman Boucher would have us believe Democratic Governor Joe Manchin and Democratic Congressman Nick Rahall don’t understand how Cap and Trade affects coal,” said Griffith. “He says these two long-time advocates of coal don’t understand how this vital legislation would affect their constituents.”
“It’s pretty clear: coal advocates oppose Cap and Trade. Radical environmentalists like the Sierra Club support Cap and Trade. And Rick Boucher sided with the environmentalists.”
Rahall has been campaigning on having voted against Cap and Trade. Last week, Manchin began running television ads in which he shoots the Cap and Trade bill with a rifle.
Griffith advocates stripping this regulatory power from the EPA and giving it back to the elected officials who must answer to the people.
