Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin comes out against Supreme Court nominee

Kerry GarnerJul 13, 2018

President Donald Trump named judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court on Monday night, and the Senate is gearing up for his confirmation. Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority. John McCain, R-Ariz., at home getting treatment for brain cancer.

"Tomorrow I begin meeting with members of the Senate", he said, "If confirmed by the Senate, I will keep an open mind in every case".

Heller is running for reelection in a state Hillary Clinton won.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh listens to Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC and other senators.

Kavanaugh sat on a panel that heard a challenge to the Clean Power Plan in 2016, and Carlson says he made clear in oral arguments that he believed the EPA overstepped its authority in establishing the rule. Any future similar fights before Kavanaugh could be meaningful.

"Tonight's announcement is only a first step", Jones said in Twitter message on Tuesday. "The people of Wisconsin need a fair, impartial and independent Supreme Court Justice who will stand up for them, not for powerful special interests".

Democrats will continue to argue that Kavanaugh's confirmation imperils Roe V Wade and reproductive rights.

Hamilton admits he's concerned about Kavanaugh's connection to ObamaCare.

The senator added that "President Trump could nominate George Washington and they would all be up in arms".

President Trump's prime-time Supreme Court nominee announcement Monday was witnessed by a live television audience of almost 26 million, according to Nielsen data - a sizable viewership, but smaller than his last. Trump ended up picking a former clerk of Kennedy's. And I think they have, also, a right.

He also visited his great-grandmother Princess Alice's tomb in the Russian Orthodox Church. It is the first official visit to the area by a member of the royal family.

Kamala Harris (Calif.) issued a statement saying Kavanaugh "has consistently proven to be a conservative ideologue instead of a mainstream jurist". What we know is that at least two Democrats facing tough reelection campaigns in red states are positioning themselves to vote to confirm Kavanaugh if it seems politic to do so.

But: Donnelly has also demonstrated a willingness to vote against Trump on big votes, like the tax bill. "You can challenge Judge Kavanaugh on his legal reasoning". Other costs were related to home improvements, White House spokesman Raj Shah told the Washington Post.

"That's going to go up to the [nation's highest] court and that's huge", she continued.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton (Ark.) referred to Democratic opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a "laughable political game" during an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.

They're mostly conservatives and have been embraced by the GOP majority in the Senate. That's something that Paul, who has a strong libertarian streak, has been vocal about opposing.

Still, Paul is No. 2 on the list because he hasn't issued his support yet. "I look forward to meeting with him and discussing his record first-hand".

Collins is the likeliest to cross party lines.

Manchin, for example, said in a statement about the nomination, "The Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare".

- Ever since declaring that handgun bans violate the Second Amendment a decade ago, the Supreme Court has refused to say which other gun control laws are constitutional and which aren't.

So what does this mean if the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling were to be overturned?
