Murkowski, Collins: Trump could have done worse than Kavanaugh

Trump legal adviser talks up Kavanaugh and Barrett for Supreme Court

Now is a good time to contact your senators and express your opinion on confirmation hearings and the nominee.

"Here is a memo to the Parkland students: If you care about common sense gun violence protection, Judge Kavanaugh is your worst nightmare", said Sen.

For the group, that includes also sending staff to Kavanaugh's alma mater, Yale, and the Clinton Library in Little Rock, Arkansas due to Kavanaugh's work on the independent counsel's office investigating President Bill Clinton.

The Affordable Care Act is "wildly popular and necessary in the reddest of states", said Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, in an interview Tuesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

"On behalf of our six million members, the NRA strongly supports Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court", Cox added.

Second, Byrd earned his law degree by attending classes while in Congress, however, he had not been admitted to the bar and had never tried a case. They should not be subjected to investigations. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the minority leader.

The confirmation marathon is expected to drag on for months, and no date has yet been set for hearings.

The committee's chairman, Sen.

She and the other Democrats on this list all turned down invites from the White House to attend Kavanaugh's announcement, which was widely viewed as a symbolic effort to keep their independence in this process.

Colbert, a fierce critic of the Trump administration, joked Tuesday night on "The Late Show" about playing a drinking "game" that involved pouring himself a drink every time his glass was empty as he watched Trump's announcement of Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh was first confirmed to the appellate court in 2006. The Republicans pick up seats, increase their majority? Under what circumstances would McCain's vote be needed, realistically?

Froome was left 55 seconds behind in the overall standings with another week of nervy rolling stages before hitting the Alps. The 28-year-old Sagan said this win means that "I'm really back" following his disqualification from the 2017 Tour.

Republicans are pushing for a bipartisan showing of support for Kavanaugh by trying to peel off Democrats who are up for re-election from Trump-won states.

The group also plans to advertise in Alabama, in hopes of either winning the vote of Sen.

Like Manchin, Indiana's Donnelly is a vulnerable Democrat heading into the 2018 midterms. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota - are seen as likely to vote to confirm the nominee.

Hatch said on PBS that Kavanaugh should have an easier time than Justice Neil Gorsuch had a year ago, "but I don't know". He wrote that the high court has "held that the government may further those interests so long as it does not impose an undue burden on a woman seeking an abortion".

Manchin says he'll review Kavanaugh's record closely - and with particular attention to health care.

Maine's Collins and Alaska's Murkowski are among the few Republicans in the Senate who are typically described as "moderate" in the mainstream media. The two GOP senators also support access to abortion services.

Stabenow said in a Monday statement that the vacancy "represents a very consequential moment for our country where we can chose to make progress on so many important issues for MI families or we can turn the clock back". Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. "We are turning to Senator Collins to say we need you in lockstep with our patients". We have opinions right now pending in the lower courts that are going to come up to the Supreme Court on things like whether or not insurance companies can discriminate against people with preexisting conditions. Activists said he represents a grave threat to bedrock environmental laws that protect clean air and water and endangered species.

Barber argues that Kavanaugh, if given the opportunity, would be the swing vote in overturning Roe, which legalized abortion nationwide.

The court majority agreed with EPA that it did not have to consider costs in protecting health and safety. 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.
