Democrats' total war against Kavanaugh proves they hate the Constitution

Most Republicans are expected to support Kavanaugh, while most Democrats will nearly certainly vote against him.

"We'll hear all kinds of fantastic stories about the pain and suffering that this perfectly qualified, widely respected judge will somehow unleash on America if we confirm him to the court", McConnell said.

"I've never seen a president act as though the Supreme Court has to be a wing of the White House instead of an independent branch of government", Leahy said in an interview Tuesday. Still, Leahy doesn't talk as though Senate confirmation is a done deal.

Trump said in the wake of Kennedy's retirement that he would not be asking potential justices about Roe v. Wade.

Trump introduced Kavanaugh as "a judge's judge" and cited his "proven commitment to equal justice under the law".

The on-the-fence Democrats ignored calls by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to present a united Democratic front against Kavanaugh's nomination.

"This is going to give heartburn to some conservatives", said Brian Darling, a former Republican counsel to Sen. Based on that presumption, Kavanaugh dissented from a 2012 decision upholding a bank robber's conviction for carrying a machine gun in the course of a violent crime. "Kavanaugh would use the Court as a tool to doom all women to that fate". Kavanaugh sided with a religious group that objected to having to notify their insurer or the federal government if they wanted an exemption.

Even though Yale Law School published a press release touting the accomplishments of Brett Kavanaugh, its alumnus and President Donald Trump's new Supreme Court nominee, not everyone at the school is singing his praises.

Her group is paying for hundreds of canvassers to knock on doors in states with close Senate races to mobilize voters for the midterm elections.

The groups plan to develop two sets of ads, with one targeting Democratic incumbent senators up for reelection in Florida, Wisconsin, Missouri and Montana, who voted against Trump's last nominee to the high court, Neil M. Gorsuch.

Kennedy was often a swing vote in the Supreme Court, joining liberal justices to legalize gay marriage and voting with conservatives to throw out campaign-finance restrictions. "And that's the kind of leadership North Dakotans expect from their senators".

As Barack Obama once said to John McCain: "The election is over". If Manchin votes against Kavanaugh, it will be more ammunition in the GOP arsenal come November.

The same Red-State Democrats who voted for Gorsuch will likely also vote for Kavanaugh. "Let's be clear: a vote for Kavanaugh would be a vote to rip health care from American families and deny women their constitutional right to make their own health care decisions". That's because, he says, the Supreme Court will ultimately determine whether health insurers will be prohibited from denying insurance to hundreds of thousands of his constituents with pre-existing conditions.

And the Utah Republican accused Democrats of trying to derail his confirmation even before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings begin and predicted they would try to turn Kavanaugh into a "judicial monster". "I look forward to meeting with Judge Kavanaugh, examining his rulings and making a determination of whether to provide my consent".

"Judge Kavanaugh should not be allowed anywhere near our nation's highest bench", a post on the Democratic Party's official blog said.

The Kentucky Republican faces a challenge in winning Kavanaugh's confirmation.

But on Kavanaugh, he isn't tipping his hand early and insists he'll keep an "open mind".

"Tonight's announcement is only a first step", Jones posted on Twitter Monday night.

Trump did go through the process. "I do not apply an ideological test to their personal views". He also says he is "deeply honored" to be nominated to fill the seat of Kennedy, for whom he clerked. The initial list of states targeted by the Judicial Crisis Network includes ones Trump won in 2016 and where three Democrats are in tough reelection fights - Sens.
