Trump nominates Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks with protesters in front of the Supreme Court in Washington

"There will be the usual attempts to sully his reputation not only in the Senate but outside the Senate but he'll be able to handle it", Sen.

But when it came to confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch-Trump's replacement for Scalia-Collins and Murkowski both voted with McConnell despite being pro-choice on the abortion issue.

As part of that strategy, Democrats are focusing on Republicans Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who both helped doom the repeal of the health care law.

Join Care2 activists asking the Senate to thoroughly evaluate this Supreme Court nominee and hold him accountable for his risky record.

Because he was a swing-vote in favor of abortion rights, Kennedy's departure from the court has sparked alarm among abortion rights activists that Roe v. Wade could be overturned.

Per Politico, McCain in a statement said that Kavanaugh is "a fair, independent, and mainstream judge who has earned widespread respect from his peers". Republicans, meanwhile, have largely targeted Manchin, Donnelly, and Heitkamp, betting that their electoral prospects could coerce them into bucking party loyalty. That group includes Sen. Doug Jones, a Democrat, or inflicting political damage on him in his reelection campaign in 2020.

Murkowski said in an interview that abortion rights is a "big factor". Among his tasks is helping to select judicial nominees who had been carefully vetted for their commitment to the conservative legal agenda.

News4 hours ago Hulu's CASTLE ROCK Trailer is Pure Stephen King Terror
The year is 2018, and it seems like every other day, we get news of yet another Stephen King adaptation. Sissy Spacek, Scott Glenn, Terry O'Quinn, Jane Levy , and Melanie Lynskey also star in Castle Rock .

Manchin was was also among the three Democrats to vote for Gorsuch past year. Grass-roots groups are deploying in an effort to drum up local media coverage to pressure key senators. The conservative Judicial Crisis Network plans to launch a $1.4 million ad buy in four states - Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia - introducing the nominee in a favorable light.

In a tweet Tuesday night, NARAL dismissed Kavanaugh as "some frat boy named Brett" who would take away reproductive rights. Though there is a good chance the latest challenge to Obamacare will make it to the Supreme Court, judges typically won't articulate specific positions on cases moving through the courts. "Where we have leverage is with senators who call themselves pro-life".

Kavanaugh still lives in the D.C. area, raising his kids in the Maryland suburbs just miles from the White House.

"We are urging people to do events in-district at Senate offices", Elizabeth Beavers, the associate policy director of Indivisible, which is helping to organize the protest, told the Post. According to the New York Times, McConnell fears that Democrats could use this material to delay confirmation hearings - you know, because Democrats would like to thoroughly evaluate the record of the nominee as part of the confirmation process.

"Brett Kavanaugh has gotten rave reviews - rave reviews - actually, from both sides", Trump said Tuesday, a stark mischaracterization of Democrats' comments, as he left the White House for a weeklong overseas trip.

Elizabeth Warren, Democratic senator for MA. "A woman's right to make her own health care decisions is at risk". Does Susan Collins sound like she's leaning no here? "We are turning to Senator Collins to say we need you in lockstep with our patients".

Compared to some of Trump's other options, Kavanaugh is "more of a moderate conservative", McDaniel said: he is a textualist and originalist, but also says he would adhere to precedent. Remember, he consulted with them during the selection process. "The principle of "I'll follow settled law" no longer works". Republicans hold a slim 51-49 Senate majority, but they hope to gain support for Kavanaugh from a handful of Democrats who are up for re-election in states where Trump is popular. But in an era where liberal protests have become almost weekly events, Democratic strategists and activists say they see a new sense of urgency when it comes to the country's highest court.
