TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

They made their voices heard loud and clear chanting "This is what democracy looks like."

The message on the signs they carried at the corner of Secor Road and west Central Avenue on Friday night: "Say No to Kavanaugh," as in Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's selection to fill a vacancy on the U.S Supreme Court.

Drivers passed the protesters by and honked in support.

The protesters believe President Trump should not be allowed to hand pick a justice who may eventually have a role in the Robert Mueller investigation.

"I would oppose any nomination under any administration if the president, whoever it is, might be under investigation" said Molly Reed.

Timing is also part of the opposition. The make-up of the Senate could change.

"I don't think the Senate should be voting to approve him before the mid-term election in November," said Debbie Schwartz.

Some feel Kavanaugh would not interpret laws rather change them to reflect his own person views based on his past rulings.

"Well I think Kavanaugh has shown himself to be very conservative, very anti-woman rights, anti-workers," said Lauraine Carpenter.

So how can a small group in Toledo make a big difference in Washington?

They're asking people to call the offices of Senators to block the Kavanaugh nomination.
