Democratic coalition targets moderate GOP senators in SCOTUS fight

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.

The focus is not just on influencing the confirmation votes in the Senate but on using the Supreme Court nomination battle to energize Trump supporters to turn out for Republican candidates in the fall elections.

"Judge Kavanaugh's nomination presents an emergency - for democratic life, for our safety and freedom, for the future of our country", the letter reads.

Great America groups spent about $3 million on ads and direct mail during the Gorsuch fight, said Eric Beach, who runs the groups with Rollins.

What would it take for President Donald Trump to get yet another Supreme Court pick? But, unlike presidents or members of Congress, Supreme Court justices do not have term limits - they serve until they resign or die.

More than 400 upset alumni, students and educators are calling for "moral courage" from the Ivy League school in an open letter online to condemn Kavanaugh, fearing that he would overturn Roe v. Wade, harm the environment, twist the First Amendment, and "act as a rubber stamp for President Trump's fraud and abuse", The College Fix reported.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh listens to Sen. "This process is not on the level", Fallon said, referring to the Democratic senator's quick rejection of any Trump nominee.

"In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy left by Justice Kennedy, President Trump has chosen a nominee with impeccable credentials and a strong record of upholding the Constitution", McCain said.

Many of Heitkamp's colleagues-as well as her Republican opponent for Senate this November, U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.,-shared their thoughts nearly immediately after the announcement. "A solid conservative who interprets the law, who won't make the law".

Collins, from ME, and Alaska's Murkowski are two genuine mavericks in the Republican Party, and all eyes have turned to them. 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". Now, it is not my place to say whether that should be a majority vote or what the Senate calls-in Washington speak-a cloture vote that requires sixty votes for something to happen.

However, Brewer said she does not think McCain will make it back to the Senate in order to vote on the Kavanaugh confirmation.
