Chief Justice of California Tani Cankil-Sakauye has reportedly renounced her Republican Party registration and re-registered as a no-party-preference voter, citing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Cankil-Sakauye made the comments in a phone interview on Thursday to CALmatters, a nonprofit news organization, saying that she had been thinking about Kavanaugh's September confirmation hearing.
"Ive been thinking about it for some time," Cankil-Sakauye said of her decision. She said that she spoke with her husband and friends about the hearing and their conclusion was that "you didnt leave the party - the party left you."
I felt compelled to make a choice now. It better suits what I do and how I approach issues," Cankil-Sakauye told CALmatters, adding that she has become displeased with the GOP's direction nationally and in her home state.
Cankil-Sakauye has excoriated President Donald Trump for being harmful to the "rule of law" because of his attacks on judges.
