Supreme Court pick Kavanaugh: Bush loyalist, conservative stalwart

If Democrats can convince voters in red states that Kavanaugh is a threat to Obama-era health care, they might be able to peel off the one or two GOP votes needed to sink Kavanaugh's nomination.

Kavanaugh graduated from Yale Law School and clerked for Kennedy in the mid-1990s. There is a 51-49 split in favor of Republicans, suggesting Kavanaugh will likely be confirmed as Kennedy's replacement, though it is not a done deal.

The anxiety over defections speaks to the narrowness of the Republican's majority in the Senate.

Schumer acknowledged Tuesday that Democrats will need to persuade at least two Republicans to oppose Kavanaugh.

While experts are dubious the new challenges have standing, in no small part because Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal members of the court in 2012 to uphold the law, Democratic senators have hinted healthcare will be a core piece of their opposition to Kavanaugh's nomination. "The most important thing we can do". "I look forward to meeting with Judge Kavanaugh during the confirmation process".

Kavanaugh's views on presidential power and abortion are expected to draw particular attention in his confirmation hearing.

The ad will be a bio spot about Kavanaugh, JCN said Monday night. But four Democrats from states Trump won in 2016 voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch a year ago, leaving the Republicans room for error. Before he was nominated to the D.C. circuit by George W. Bush, he was the former president's staff secretary and worked for Bush during the 2000 Florida vote recount.

" Ben Jealous, the Democratic candidate for governor, said of the nomination: "We are now facing the most conservative Supreme Court in a generation".

Kavanaugh, just 53, could serve on the high court for decades.

"Kavanaugh's thorough and principled takedown of the mandate was indeed a roadmap for the Supreme Court - the Supreme Court dissenters, justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito, who explained that the mandate violated the Constitution", Walker said.

Rep. Bradley Byrne, R-Fairhope, lauded Kavanaugh's nomination.

He is now a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

The Washington Post: Conservatives Are Finally Getting The Supreme Court They Dreamed Of - "While President Trump plays the appointment of a Supreme Court justice like a reality show, promoting the dramatic reveal of the nominee's name in tonight's prime-time special, it nearly doesn't matter which of the contenders is chosen".

Similar sentiments were shared by Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Saks.

But others noted that the environment at the Supreme Court had gotten very hostile at times after the announcement. "Now, I urge the Senate to get to work and confirm our nominee".

Trump past year appointed Neil Gorsuch, who has already become one of the most conservative justices, after Senate Republicans in 2016 refused to consider Democratic former President Barack Obama's nominee Merrick Garland to fill a vacancy left by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. The judge indicated that on the high court he would faithfully interpret the Constitution as it is written, providing an unsurprising nod to originalism.

"Now is the time for the American people to make their voices heard, loudly, clearly, from one end of this country to the other", the New York Democrat said.

Cornyn says Democrats have pledged to stop the nominee at all costs, but "we will see President Trump's nominee confirmed on a timely basis".

However, at 9:30 p.m., shortly after she had spoken with Sean Hannity about the Kavanaugh pick, she tweeted she felt "threatened" and later said she was returning to the studio.
