Brett Kavanaugh Will Right the Course of the Supreme Court

Brett Kavanaugh Will Right the Course of the Supreme Court

"As a point of comparison, look at Bob Casey who is also up for re-election in the Trump-won state of Pennsylvania".

Democrats will continue to argue that Kavanaugh's confirmation imperils Roe V Wade and reproductive rights.

The Republicans in the Senate want desperately for Kavanaugh to be confirmed before the midterm elections in November-where it is possible that the balance of power in Congress will be altered -and so the pressure will be on to move as quickly as possible. Republican Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are among those on his radar.

Congressional Republicans suffered a crushing defeat in 2017 when they tried and failed to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act, also called Obamacare, former President Barack Obama's healthcare law.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee stands in the East Room of the White House, Monday, July 9, 2018.

Compared to their initial attacks on Kavanaugh, Democrats are putting less stress in recent days on the possibility that he could threaten Roe v Wade, a landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision supporting abortion rights.

Kavanaugh would be confirmed, and voters' attention could return to Trump's behavior, health care, tariffs and other issues. It is customary for nominees to meet with senators, particularly the senior members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The Council President told reporters: "Politicians come and go but the problems they've created for their people remain". Johnson resigned on Monday, adding to divisions over Brexit that threaten to tear apart May's government.

Kavanaugh has not openly expressed a position on abortion, and tradition suggests he will not during his upcoming confirmation hearing or in meetings with lawmakers.

After much hemming and hawing, the two Republican senators most apt to withhold their support, Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, will ultimately back the nominee, saying they are comfortable with his record and temperament.

"Let's put it this way: There were some who have been on the list that I would have had a very, very hard time supporting", she told Politico. John Hoeven, R-N.D., who was in the White House during the president's news conference. This includes launching a $5 million ad campaign and harnessing #StopKavanaugh on social media.

While Kavanaugh, 53, was framed as the more "establishment" conservative pick of the other candidates, various Republicans had phoned Trump last week to voice their objections over his potential nomination, including about a 2011 opinion where he declined to rule the Obamacare health insurance mandate as unconstitutional. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia), Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota) and Joe Donnelly (D-Indiana).

A press release by the Women's March organization slamming Kavanaugh received criticism for writing "In response to Donald Trump's nomination of XX to the Supreme Court of the United States", implying that they would oppose whoever the nominee was.

I do. That's not to say it won't be hard. Your base is all over you.
