Republican senators are gaslighting Democrats on Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

Claire McCaskill opposed Gorsuch and her approval rating had dropped "in a state that President Trump won by a 20-point margin".

Kavanaugh also would be the sixth Roman Catholic among the current bench, and the second, along with Gorsuch, to graduate from the same elite boys' Catholic high school in suburban Maryland.

Focusing on progressive outcomes, failing to even consider the role of the Constitution or its meaning in judicial decisions, Schumer smeared Kavanaugh as a "hard-right" judge. Other senators on this list declined that invite.

White House spokesman Raj Shah told the Post that Kavanaugh incurred his debt because he buys Washington Nationals season tickets and tickets for playoff games for himself and a "handful" of friends, as well as for home improvements.

"Now, more than ever, Democrats must recognize that although we are in an age of political polarization, voting across party lines might actually benefit the party itself".

But: Jones sounded skeptical of Kavanaugh in an initial statement, saying he'll thoroughly vet Kavanaugh's background.

But the Senate's top Republican, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, hailed a "superb choice" in Kavanaugh and urged senators to "put partisanship aside".

"Judge Kavanaugh has also written some troubling things about environmental protections, consumer protections, and common-sense gun safety laws - all of which should be carefully examined by this Senate and by the American people before we have any hearings", Schumer said. "I will be diligent in measuring the record and in undertaking an independent review".

There are five Democrat senators who are up for re-election in November.

Remarks from two GOP senators considered "questionable" in their support of the president's Supreme Court nominee lend some hope that the Republican majority in the Senate may be able to confirm Brett Kavanaugh without any help from Democrats.

"She's under a tremendous amount of pressure because we all know this could shift the balance of the court on the abortion issue", Musgrave told the Tribune.

And that has continued to be the focus of several Supreme Court decisions since then.

The U.S. Senate votes on nominees to be Justices on the Supreme Court. Trump ended up picking a former clerk of Kennedy's.

The 25.6 million figure cited by Nielsen covers viewers who watched Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox and CNN during Mr. Trump's announcement Monday, and excludes smaller networks and other formats. "I think we should have the hearings; let's lay out the facts". He said it was clear that many Democrats "didn't care who the nominee was at all".

Republicans have little margin of error for the final vote unless a few Democrats can be brought onboard. Earlier this year he voted in favor of a bill that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

"The last time I saw this many dinosaurs on fire, Chris Pratt was running from them", Ingraham referencing Pratt's "Jurassic World" films.

But: Murkowski also said that Roe v. Wade wasn't going to make or break her vote: "It's not as if those are the only matters that come before the Supreme Court". Leipold, an expert in criminal law and procedure, was a consultant, and Kavanaugh was an associate counsel and a co-author of the report laying out the grounds for Clinton's impeachment.

Presidents of both major parties have been choosing nominees of similar professional and educational experience for decades because the stakes have risen so high in filling Supreme Court vacancies.
