Kavanaugh caught up with ‘Mayor Pete' in late October in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Kavanaugh was at his town hall when he launched a women's empowerment platform that includes policies to address everything from gender pay inequities to women's healthcare.

He has also pledged to create a cabinet that's made up of at least 50 percent women.
