Everything you need to know about Trump's Supreme Court pick

"After reviewing this nominee's record, I know why powerful special interests in Washington selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh to work on the Supreme Court for them, not the people of Wisconsin", she said.

"John's not going to give up and he's not going to resign, and he's said wonderful, brilliant things about Judge Kavanaugh", former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Mac and Gaydos. "The stakes are high for the LGBT community". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., called him a "superb choice" who is well-qualified for the job.

But McConnell, who met with Kavanaugh in his office, praised him on Tuesday as a "great nominee" who deserves bipartisan support.

Starr says Kavanaugh has the merits to become the next Supreme Court justice.

"When I was 15, I found a friend near death, bleeding to death from a back alley abortion", Frankel said, according to the Washington Examiner, which reported she held up the hanger and tapped it on the table.

"And he has sent 21 of those 25 women clerks - an impressive 84 percent - on to clerkships at the Supreme Court", they wrote. "Like Trump's first nominee previous year, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of" Obamacare".

Liberal organization Demand Justice said it will launch a $5 million campaign urging a vote against Kavanaugh, with efforts aimed at three red-state Democrats - Manchin, Indiana's Joe Donnelly and North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp - as well as Republican Sens.

If confirmed, his relatively modest means would rank Kavanaugh in the lower tier in personal finances among members of court.

With confirmation hearings creeping up faster than Democrats might hope, the party and its progressive allies - stung and, initially, frozen in the aftermath of the announcement that swing-vote Justice Anthony Kennedy would retire - are beginning to make clear their strategy to muddy up Kavanaugh.

Robert Bork, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to the Supreme Court in 1987, came under intense scrutiny by Democrats who mined his legal writings for evidence of his conservative leanings.

The American Civil War started in 1861, after a tense decade of increasing hostility between Southern Democrats who wanted to extend slavery beyond its boundaries as established by constitutional laws and Northern Republicans who saw slavery as evil and wanted to keep it within those limits.

Clinton was clearly suggesting that Trump and Kavanaugh want to return to the days when slavery was legal in the South. And the court responded by desegregating public schools, upholding the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act and legalizing interracial marriage, to name a few landmark decisions.

"To say that if a president deems a law unconstitutional, he doesn't have to obey it, that's unsafe at any time, but it's particularly risky when Donald Trump is president and we are going to make this a major and important issue", Schumer said.
