Susan Collins Won't Support Anti-Roe v. Wade Nominee

  • GOP senator vows to reject SCOTUS nominee who is pro-life would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade

Sunday morning on Meet the Press, Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) said this will be a key vote for everyone in the Senate. Collins also said she encouraged Trump to "broaden" his list beyond the 25 potential nominees already on it. Collins, who appeared on ABC's "This Week" and CNN's "State of the Union," said she would only back a judge who would show respect for settled law such as the Roe decision, which has always been anathema to conservatives.

Last year, three Senate Democrats joined Republicans to confirm Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, a staunch judicial conservative. So you're not just voting on whether you think Trump should have his nominee.

In the same interview, which was taped Friday at the White House, the president said that he has been advised not to ask potential nominees about where they stand on Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling on abortion.

"I told [Trump] that I was looking for a nominee that would demonstrate a respect for precedent, a long-standing and vital tenet of our judicial system", Collins said Sunday on ABC. Pryor was a top finalist to replace Justice Antonin Scalia's seat past year, but sources say Pryor has been eliminated this time around.

Amazon plans to offer incentives to foster small independent delivery fleets
The e-commerce company said "successful owners" can earn up to $300,000 annually with a fleet of up to 40 delivery vehicles. Businesses will pick up Amazon packages from one of its 75 USA delivery stations before transporting them to buyers.

"A candidate for this important position who would overturn Roe v. Wade would not be acceptable to me, because that would indicate an activist agenda that I don't want to see a judge have".

"To allow states to be able to go back to criminalizing women's freedom to make their own healthcare decisions, I think would be devastating", Kaine said.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME, an abortion rights supporter, is considered one of the key votes on a nominee.

A well-established moderate on many issues, Collins said she met with President Trump recently to discuss his choice to replace outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Drogba: African teams are going backwards
It's a sense of continental solidarity or if you can't beat them, join them. Both teams amassed four points and a goal aggregate of 4-4.

"Bill Nelson claims to be independent, but then he admits he expects to vote against the Supreme Court nominee before even knowing their name", tweeted Scott. So far, Murkowski has stayed relatively mum on the topic, saying only that she would "carefully scrutinize the qualifications of judicial nominees" and would cast an "independent vote". She said she wouldn't vote for someone who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

"So I'm actually quite happy about it", he said. "Four months until elections for the U.S. House of Representatives and 50 percent of American voters say they plan to vote for Democratic candidates".

Sanders also announced that her deputy Raj Shah will take leave from his role to "oversee communications, strategy and messaging coordination with Capitol Hill allies" surrounding the Supreme Court nomination.
