Mike Pence: 'I Do' Still Want Roe v. Wade Overturned

  • Trump legal adviser talks up Kavanaugh and Barrett for Supreme Court

Republicans hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate - but Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) isn't expected to vote due to medical issues that make it hard for him to travel to Capitol Hill. John McCain, who has been absent from the floor while he battles brain cancer, will return for a vote.

McGahn has long pushed for Kavanaugh to be considered for the Supreme Court, having worked with him in the Bush administration. Plus, Flake's predecessor in the Senate, Jon Kyl, will be guiding Kavanaugh through the confirmation process.

McCaskill, a two-term Democrat, is running for reelection in a state that Trump won by 19 percentage points in 2016. Manchin declined an invitation to attend the announcement. Other senators on this list declined that invite.

Despite Democrats attempt to demonize him, Kavanaugh came off great when Trump introduced him to the American public as his nominee. "We don't know what's going to work yet".

The new surge of energy could help Democrats in House races, where the party's fortunes largely rest in suburban swing districts.

"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.

Trump's choice was met with predictable reactions from Republicans and Democrats.

Bieber's parents posted social-media messages that are being interpreted as confirmation, as well. Justin Beiber has taken a massive step forward with girlfriend Hailey Baldwin .

But Daniel Foster, a contributing editor at National Review Online, "agreed" with the story and insisted that "we deserve a Supreme Court Justice who isn't bought and paid for by Big Pretzel".

Democrats are anxious that Kavanaugh will join with the court's other four conservative members to reverse legalized abortion in the United States. But, unlike presidents or members of Congress, Supreme Court justices do not have term limits - they serve until they resign or die. Trump ended up picking a former clerk of Kennedy's. But barring some previously unreported damning information on Kavanaugh coming out, President Trump's nominee will be confirmed, and should be.

Just as important, Democrats would be angry across the country and looking to even the score following the White House's victory. If he gets a "no" vote from all Democrats, he loses seats. He's also sided with abortion opponents.

Reyes predicted close scrutiny of Kavanaugh's decisions.

"Brett Kavanaugh is a political animal".

Manchin was one of three Democrats a year ago to vote in favor of confirming Neil Gorsuch to the high court. They have included backing citizens' right to own semi-automatic rifles, delaying a teenager from getting an abortion by detaining her for being in the USA illegally and supporting a religious-liberty challenge to the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive coverage mandate.

"The essential message is Roe", Wikler said, citing the potential that a more conservative court would overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

At least 100 dead in Japan floods
The rains crippled transportation networks, with bus and train services partly or completely shut down in 15 prefectures. Evacuation orders were in place for almost 2 million people and landslide warnings were issued in many prefectures.

The Washington Post reported on his baseball expenditures, which included season tickets for himself.

Leipold said it's possible Kavanaugh's feelings simply evolved over time but noted that Kavanaugh had authored a similar article in 1998, near the end of the Starr investigation, in which he said he "fully appreciated that this could be disruptive of the president doing his duties".

But: Paul has never said he opposes Kavanaugh, as one of Paul's campaign aides pointed out to Blake on Monday night. Kavanaugh, a 53-year-old appeals judge, is revered in conservative circles for his perceived loyalty to the text of the Constitution.

Thus Collins' statements on precedents look like she is trying to thread the needle between an anti-choice Republican Party electorate and Maine's pro-choice general election electorate.

Gloria got very personal, opening up about the almost fatal abortion she endured. Unlike Murkowski, she voted for President Barack Obama's two Supreme Court picks, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

He has not publicly stated that he would vote to overturn Roe v Wade.
