Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh: A look into his finances

Based on past his past writings, Kavanaugh would also bolster the power and prerogatives of the President - an area likely to elicit particular Senate attention because of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election and ties to the Trump campaign.

He said his committee will examine the 300 cases Kavanaugh has made decisions in before bringing the nomination to a vote in the full Senate.

"We should be very concerned that this nominee has been vetted by the Heritage Foundation, whose goal is to repeal the ACA and the protections it provides", Sen.

Jones said Sunday, before the nominee was revealed as Brett Kavanaugh, that he could vote either way.

According to aides close to the White House who spoke to Politico, in that meeting Kennedy recommended Trump pick Brett Kavanaugh, who had served as a former law clerk to Kennedy. In the case of a 17-year-old undocumented immigrant who was seeking an abortion, he dissented from the majority ruling and voted that she shouldn't be allowed to obtain the procedure.

Raj Shah, the White House spokesman handling questions about Kavanaugh's nomination, did not immediately respond for comment.

It outranked its cable and broadcast competitors in terms of the most coveted demographic for advertisers, however, reaching roughly 1.68 million viewers between the ages of 25 and 54, the report said. Women lead most of the major Democratic resistance groups, coordinated the major anti-Trump protests and are running for office in record numbers at all levels of government. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican, and Sen.

Although it was a relatively early point in the race, Lap 53 proved to be one of the defining moments of the night. The wreck occurred on lap 54 after contact between Brad Keselowski and Stenhouse near the front of the pack.

In the hours after the Republican president tapped the conservative jurist, Democrats struggled to unify behind a clear and coherent message to combat the nomination, which could shift the court to the right for decades. If confirmed, he would nearly certainly continue the Supreme Court's run of business-friendly rulings in contentious, precedent-setting cases that have weakened labor unions and class-action lawsuits in recent years.

The newly-nominated justice on Tuesday went to the US Capitol to begin meeting with senators ahead of any confirmation hearings to explain his positions. Kavanaugh was first confirmed to the appellate court in 2006. "Don't defame him for living a life most of us would be proud of", Graham said.

Kavanaugh's opinion on controversial cases, such as abortion, are less known. Casey stated on Monday that he wouldn't support the nominee for the Supreme Court, according to the Pennsylvania lawmaker's office. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, said he would oppose whoever the chief executive chose. Sen.

Casey is up for re-election in the fall midterms, with every poll done between him and Republican Lou Barletta showing Casey with an advantage.

While Collins has praised Kavanaugh's "impressive credentials", which include a dozen years as a federal judge, she said she would vote against any nominee who is "hostile" to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that cemented the legality of abortions nationwide.

The large number of Democrats eyeing presidential runs in 2020 further complicates the dynamic as they harness the energy and rhetoric of the left in ways that might not help red-state Democrats this year. In a Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll last month, 63 percent of Democrats rate their interest level as a "9 or 10" on a 10-point scale; only 47 percent of Republicans do the same.

"I'm not saying we are guaranteed victory, but there is a path to victory. We need to unite our Democratic caucus as quickly as possible so that we can put the maximum amount of pressure on trying to flip Susan Collins or Lisa Murkowski", Brian Fallon, head of Demand Justice, told ABC's Powerhouse Politics podcast Wednesday.
