Brian Cashman signs letter endorsing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Three Democrats who are up for re-election in red states - Sens.

The senator had stumped publicly for her and called her an outstanding judge. "This nominee has stood more, both certainly before he became a judge, for presidential overreach".

"President Trump is a realist about the world", Pence said.

After endorsing Trump choice Neil Gorsuch a year ago, Cashman is at it again, this time backing Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump "did exactly what he said he would do on the campaign trail - nominate someone who will overturn women's reproductive rights", the NY senator said. In June, the justices avoided a broad ruling on whether partisan gerrymandering violates the constitutional rights of voters and whether federal judges can intervene to rectify it.

"I do not ask about a nominee's personal opinions", Trump said Monday night.

But that may be a tall order. The group Fix the Court, which advocates for Supreme Court transparency and accountability, sued the National Archives and Records Administration and the Justice Department on Tuesday over outstanding requests under the Freedom of Information Act related to Kavanaugh's time working under the former independent counsel Ken Starr, who was investigating the Clinton White House.

"I especially want to express our gratitude to Mitch McConnell for all that he did to make this achievement possible", Trump said. Jon Kyl. He also met with Sen.

"We'll do well to remember that we are evaluating a judge, not debating a candidate for political office", McConnell said, noting that several Democrats had signaled their opposition to Trump's pick before the nomination was made public. He said "that's the accountability that will be lost if Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed". The vetting process, he said, is "going to be thorough and going to be done right".

Kavanaugh said only that Congress should pass a law that delays certain investigations until after the presidency, Feldman told PolitiFact. John McCain of Arizona. Rand Paul, a fierce opponent of government surveillance that some critics say Kavanaugh would vote to legitimize, vowed to keep an "open mind" on his nomination. That issue could make its way to the Supreme Court.

Maryland's junior senator, Chris Van Hollen, says Democrats need to persuade a few Republican senators that a conservative majority, with no moderating swing vote, would be bad for the country for a generation or more. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. He worked on the legal and ethical issues handled by that office.

Kavanaugh replied: "I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully".

The vice president said Kavanaugh's qualifications would be the key to his success. But she added that other issues also would come into play for her, including "judicial temperament" and "judicial philosophy". "We've got the Russian Federation investigation, which is a significant one, and here we've got [a nominee] who said that the president should be above the law when they're president", Leahy said.

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".

Kavanaugh in the past has made statements about respecting precedent that could help in winning over senators, particularly Murkowski and Collins.

But Kavanaugh's nomination has triggered consternation among pro-choice progressives who have viewed him as a threat to abortion rights.

NBC News reported that the Trump team was in talks with Kennedy about his replacement for months and he only felt comfortable retiring after he "received assurance that it would be Kavanaugh", per NBC reporter Geoff Bennett.

That is one reason many Democrats are demanding an all-out battle to block Trump's nominee.
