Sen. Elizabeth Warren On Why She Opposes Trump's Supreme Court Nominee

McConnell to meet with Trump's Supreme Court pick Tuesday

That comes after both of them indicated, in the lead-up to Trump's announcement, that they couldn't be counted on to vote for the president's nominee.

Donnelly said he will sit down with Kavanaugh, and he will review the judge's rulings and writing in legal publications. "Can we stop being crybabies in the Democratic Party?"

But: Jones sounded skeptical of Kavanaugh in an initial statement, saying he'll thoroughly vet Kavanaugh's background. So don't be surprised if red-state Democrats who lack a robust lead in their own races decide their bosses the people admire Brett Kavanaugh's approach to constitutional law too much to turn him away. I don't think that's who he is.

National pundits have speculated that might have been part of Kavanaugh's appeal to President Donald Trump, who is highly critical of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election. Some judges are liberal, some are conservative.

"I also think when you have someone nominated to the Supreme Court, you have to ask them questions about their judicial philosophy", he said.

Stephen Colbert is "still recovering from watching America's Next Top Justice", alluding to President Trump's reality-show-ification of announcing his new Supreme Court Justice nominee. Trump ended up picking a former clerk of Kennedy's. If Barrett were the pick, maybe McCain would have decided that Trump could try to get her confirmed without his help. "All that changes for me is that we now have a nominee", she said.

Just as important, Democrats would be angry across the country and looking to even the score following the White House's victory. About 10 key senators - two or three Republicans and a half dozen Democrats - are facing intense pressure over their votes. He's also sided with abortion opponents.

Game Of Thrones season 8 spoilers: Maisie Williams 'REVEALS' series ending
Many fans accused Turner of spoiling the ending, the words revealing the Stark family to live on. Game of Thrones season 8 is due to broadcast on Sky Atlantic in early 2019.

Kavanaugh now lives in Chevy Chase, a wealthy neighborhood close to D.C. He and his family have lived there since 2006, according to The Washington Post.

"There's a lot to dislike about Brett Kavanaugh's record - including his hostility toward consumers".

Democrats have had an advantage in enthusiasm over the past year, but a high court fight could offset that advantage, producing larger Republican Senate gains in November and possibly minimizing Democratic gains in the House. They have included backing citizens' right to own semi-automatic rifles, delaying a teenager from getting an abortion by detaining her for being in the US illegally and supporting a religious-liberty challenge to the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage mandate. He argued that "the Supreme Court has repeatedly said that the government has permissible interests in favoring fetal life, protecting the best interests of the minor, and not facilitating abortion, so long as the government does not impose an undue burden on the abortion decision".

Like many judges, he's often dodged on Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case affirming the right to privacy and access to abortion. Plus, Kavanaugh has a conservative record on abortion, but he has also testified to the Senate in the past that he would respect Roe.

The disclosures were first reported by The Washington Post. Kavanaugh has taken an aggressive view in favor of executive authority.

But: Paul has never said he opposes Kavanaugh, as one of Paul's campaign aides pointed out to Blake on Monday night. "I will tell each senator that I revere the constitution". While further undermining or overturning Roe v. Wade would enable states to preserve choice, that does not guarantee reproductive rights for ME women. And in this case, the muddled messaging threatens to dampen a new surge of voter enthusiasm just a few months before midterm elections.
