Pence Says He Hasn't Spoken With Kavanaugh About Roe v. Wade

U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel brought a striking visual aid - a wire coat hanger - to a briefing for reporters in Washington, D.C., as a way of dramatizing the importance of abortion rights in the debate over whether Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice.

Congressional Democrats came out in opposition to Kavanaugh, a former federal court of appeals judge who also worked in George W. Bush's administration, moments after Trump announced his nomination during a prime-time televised event Monday night from the White House.

Three Democrats voted for Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, last year.

If Kavanaugh is confirmed, it would mean a significant shift to the right for the Supreme Court, according to the Judicial Common Space system, a metric developed by political scientists Lee Epstein, Andrew D. Martin, Jeffrey A. Segal, and Chad Westerland. Orrin Hatch of Utah, who called the judge "a very fine man", and was to confer with Sen.

Kavanaugh, who has never worked in the private sector, showed two investments on public disclosure forms for past year, which were worth a combined maximum of $65,000.

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. It will be too hard to explain to Democratic voters why they cast the votes that confirmed a nominee too "radical" for Susan Collins, and a nominee who will move the Supreme Court to the right.

Knowing full well what the Democrats attack points would be, Kavanaugh talked about the importance of women in his life and the lessons he learned on the importance of equality from his mother, as she, his father, his wife and his two young daughters looked on.

Cuomo now says he'll sue the federal government if the court overturns Roe v. Wade.

She did not explicitly say whether she would support Trump's pick.

Although Republicans have a 51-49 advantage in the Senate, the absence of Sen. Heidi Heitkamp begins to make mildly pro-Kavanaugh statements.

As senators begin the process of vetting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, public disclosure forms show he's not almost as wealthy as numerous justices on the high court.

"I don't think that's going to happen", she said.

There are two Republican senators, Susan Collins of ME, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who are being watched closely because of their pro-abortion rights stances and their votes against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act - "Obamacare". Manchin has. But Donnelly echoed Manchin when he said, "I work for the people of IN and I want them to have a voice IN this". "I can't think of anyone better [than Kavanaugh]", Amar said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight". The ease of Supreme Court confirmations depends, in part, on electoral politics in the Senate. Both senators joined Sen.
