"There's so many groups on the left declaring war on President Trump's nominee, even before they knew who he was", Graham said in a video posted to his Twitter feed Tuesday. As many as four Democrats - including three with tough re-election fights, such as Sen. That's political suicide. So Democrat Senate leader Schumer is asking members of his own party to give the Republicans a bigger Senate majority. Kavanaugh has written about a need to free the executive branch from intrusive criminal investigations.

Covington said Kavanaugh's previous writings on indictments of sitting presidents will be of particular interest to lawmakers.

"If Kavanaugh reveals himself in his confirmation hearings to be someone in that mold, the Trump base will not look fondly on providing a companion for Chief Justice Roberts".

He also took part in legal action over the vote recount in the state of Florida during the 2000 presidential election.

But that may be a tall order. "Plus, Kavanaugh is 53 years old, that's one year younger than I am. He will get a lot of questions from senators of both parties that reach into his background, and then they'll delve into the Minnesota Law Review article and try to figure out how this will play out going forward", Covington said.

"This is like comparing apples to oranges", Grassley said. "Anybody who follows this process - I've been on the judiciary committee for about 3 1/2 years now - we know that those are out of bounds for any nominee to answer".

Do you think Kavanaugh is a good pick?

Republicans have little margin of error for the final vote unless a few Democrats can be brought onboard.

The GOP controls 51 of the Senate's 100 seats, though the votes of two pro-choice Republicans - Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

It is true that it has been a while since I have been in that position. "I will try to hold my service games most of the time". His only other quarterfinals appearance was at the 2011 US Open.

Trump's nominee will face a hard battle to get senate confirmation.

"As a Democrat running for reelection in a solid red state, McCaskill does not have the same freedom to oppose Kavanaugh with an election only months away", the pollster noted. She's also said she won't support a nominee who is "hostile" toward Roe v. Wade. The two have supported access to abortion services, and activists have already begun sending wire coat hangers, as a symbol of an era when abortion was illegal, to Collins' office.

"I won and lost", Colbert added.

But according to PRRI's American Values Atlas, in 2014, ME had the 3rd highest support for legal abortion in the U.S. - with 67% who said it should be legal in most or all cases, following New Hampshire (73%) and Vermont (69%).

Democrats are anxious that Kavanaugh will join with the court's other four conservative members to reverse legalized abortion in the United States. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of IN and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota - "to once again vote across the aisle for their own sake to keep their Senate seats".

Kavanaugh in the past has made statements about respecting precedent that could help in winning over senators, particularly Murkowski and Collins.

"Judge Kavanaugh's record shows a deep respect for and strict interpretation of the Constitution", said Sen. But in a sign of unity with Trump, he accepted an invitation to Trump's Monday announcement of Kavanaugh. It's a Supreme Court justice, this is a lifetime job. Cory Booker (N.J.) were "reeling" over Trump's pick. "Brett Kavanaugh is hands down among the finest".

With all of the talk about Kavanaugh's stance on abortion, we wanted to see what he's said and how he's ruled on the issue. "And I think it's going to be a lovely thing to watch over the next month".
