On Tuesday, Fallon criticized Sen.

Sometimes, Kyl has stayed in the background, as he did in Sen. "Throughout his judicial career, Judge Kavanaugh has demonstrated a strong commitment to upholding the law, rather than legislating from the bench". "All that changes for me is that we now have a nominee", she said.

"This is like comparing apples to oranges", Grassley said.

"So I doubt seriously that that's really a legitimate concern".

Schumer is talking a good game on blocking Kavanaugh now. Collins is considered a Republican who often works across the aisle and has voted with both Democrats and Republicans.

And, if the party opposes any Trump nominee, Democrats "run the risk of losing seats and perhaps even the chance of regaining a majority", Schoen said. John McCain of Arizona.

West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, battling for reelection in a state Trump won in 2016, in a statement on Kavanaugh's nomination, said the "Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare".

So far, Democrats are uniting behind a strategy to turn the confirmation fight into a referendum on conservatives' efforts to undo abortion access, chip away at health care protections under the Affordable Care Act and protect Trump from Mueller.

A "thorough" review of Kavanaugh's paper trail is exactly what anxious Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, about Kavanaugh, given the appeals court judge has decades of political and legal opinions in which senators on the fence could probably find something not to like. Flake is one of Trump's most vocal critics, but he seems to be OK with this Supreme Court nominee.

Garland's nomination came in March, nine months before an election.

Trump's choice was met with predictable reactions from Republicans and Democrats.

Primus said it's unlikely the Supreme Court's decision legalizing same-sex marriage would be overturned, but speculated that Roe v. Wade is "somewhere between in danger and definitely gone".

"She has tended to vote for the nominees, and I think it's pretty likely she'll do that again", said professor Amy Fried, chair of the University of Maine's Department of Political Science.

In a press conference, Democratic senators took aim at Kavanaugh and criticized his rulings on hot-button issues like reproductive rights.

Among their targets are Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, as well as Doug Jones of Alabama, who is not up for re-election but represents a conservative state in the Deep South. Other senators on this list declined that invite.

If confirmed by the Senate, Kavanaugh would help cement a rightward tilt on America's top court, potentially shaping many aspects of USA society for decades to come, including women's access to abortions.

Kavanaugh was hired as a law clerk for Justice Anthony Kennedy in 1993 and was even sworn in by Kennedy as a judge on the D.C. Court of Appeals in 2003. "Like Trump's first nominee previous year, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of" Obamacare". Cory Booker (N.J.) were "reeling" over Trump's pick. When you reflect back on that time in your life, in light of Kavanaugh's nomination, where does your mind go?
