Senator Graham Slams Democratic Dissent of Kavanaugh

Great America PAC and Great America Alliance will next week launch a campaign to confirm Kavanaugh built around cable television, radio and digital ads in seven states that were won by Trump in 2016 and where Democratic senators are campaigning for reelection.

Hatch also said Tuesday that Democrats' concern that Kavanaugh's appointment to the court would endanger abortion rights was overblown and labeled it "pathetic" as a rallying cry against him.

The same poll finds that 56 percent of IN voters want their Senator, Joe Donnelly, to vote to confirm the Kavanaugh. Sen.

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nomination listed himself as the treasurer of the "Keg City Club - 100 Kegs or Bust" in his high school yearbook. The court's oldest remaining justices, two liberals and a conservative who are 85, 79 and 70, haven't suggested they're going anywhere and appear in fine health. "Throughout his judicial career, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a strong commitment to upholding the law, rather than legislating from the bench".

While Collins has praised Kavanaugh's "impressive credentials", which include a dozen years as a federal judge, she said she would vote against any nominee who is "hostile" to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that cemented the legality of abortions nationwide.

Regarding Kavanaugh being poorer than the others, many of whom had considerable earnings during years of non-government legal work, Shah said, "He's devoted his life to public service".

In fact, his history makes me more alarmed that this is a court that will be willing, if it gets five votes, to throw out Roe v. Moreover, what happens with Kavanaugh raises the stakes for many other issues and for ME legislative and gubernatorial races.

"If faced with the question of whether to overrule Roe, it's far from clear where a Justice Kavanaugh would come down", said Doug Linder, a law professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Many of Heitkamp's colleagues-as well as her Republican opponent for Senate this November, U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.,-shared their thoughts nearly immediately after the announcement.

The president of Family Research Council argues that what may be the most persuasive thing about Kavanaugh is the confidence that conservatives have in the man who nominated him.

Democrats hope two Republicans who back abortion rights, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, will vote against the nominee.

"Any nominee to fill Justice Kennedy's seat should be an independent thinker", Klobuchar said, "and as I have said since Justice Kennedy announced his retirement, I don't believe Judge Kavanaugh meets that criteria". Manchin has. But Donnelly echoed Manchin when he said, "I work for the people of IN and I want them to have a voice IN this".

Grassley said the Senate could vote on the nominee by later September or early October. A slate of progressive senators and 2020 White House hopefuls, including Sens. Democrats, eager to dig into everything Kavanaugh may have played a role in - or even seen - want every document they can get, a number Senate aides say is likely in the millions.
