US Judge Brett Kavanaugh speaks after being nominated by US President Donald Trump

Democrats on Wednesday were reorienting their uphill push to block U.S. Senate confirmation of President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court, moving healthcare to the center of their strategy and putting less emphasis on abortion rights.

Troy Covington, counsel at the Bloom Parham firm in Atlanta and a legal expert with experience in Supreme Court issues, spoke to Business Insider on Tuesday about what Senators will likely focus on during Kavanaugh's confirmation process and the long-term influence Kavanaugh could exert on the court.

"NRA-ILA will activate the tens of millions of Second Amendment supporters throughout the country in support of Judge Kavanaugh", said Cox. He said it's different with mid-term elections.

But Trump campaigned on a pledge to nominate anti-abortion judges to the Supreme Court, and all potential nominees on his short list were vetted by the pro-life conservative Federalist Society.

A former Washington, D.C. Appeals Court judge who also served as White House staff secretary under George W. Bush, 53-year-old Kavanaugh has raised concerns because of his ultra-conservative stance on abortion and women's reproductive rights.

Cuomo's Democratic primary challenger, Cynthia Nixon, held her own rally to protest Trump's selection of Kavanaugh.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy had a hand in some of the most important environmental law cases in recent history.

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. But one thing is clear: If Trump thinks this is going to be Gorsuch 2.0 - a relatively smooth process that inured to the president's political benefit on the way to an inevitable confirmation - he is mistaken. "A solid conservative who interprets the law, who won't make the law".

A liberal group, Demand Justice, has promised its own $5 million ad campaign to defeat Kavanaugh, focused on Democratic senators from Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia and Republicans from ME and Alaska.

According to The Washington Post, Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt between three credits cards and a personal loan in 2016 but the debt either was paid off or fell below the required amount to be reported. "But I just wanted to highlight that to him", Sullivan said. A slate of progressive senators and 2020 White House hopefuls, including Sens.

"There will be the usual attempts to sully his reputation not only in the Senate but outside the Senate, but he'll be able to handle it and I have every confidence he'll be confirmed", Hatch said.
