September 6, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Two South Dakota women are among the protesters arrested during the Senate confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh.

Tiffany Campbell and Grace Bucklin, working on behalf of NARAL Pro-Choice South Dakota, were arrested for civil disobedience after they were removed from the hearing Wednesday.

The Argus Leader reports Campbell and Bucklin and a third person traveled to the Capitol as part of a coordinated effort by a coalition of groups to oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Dozens of others have been arrested during the hearing Tuesday and Wednesday.
