And another thing: Mitch McConnell isn't thrilled with Kavanaugh because of the volume of documentation and material he's generated over the course of his career. Joining him were Vice President Mike Pence and former Sen. Chris Coons said at a press conference Tuesday along with other Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"It seems to be that if you are running for president on the Democratic side in 2020 or thinking about it, you have to prove you are the most insane person when it comes to Trump nominees", Graham said in the interview with Fox host Martha MacCallum. The case said that religious employers did not have to provide contraceptives but had to file a form telling the government they were not doing so, but Kavanaugh argued that the requirement violated religious freedom. The panel will launch confirmation hearings later this summer.
Based on their support for Gorsuch, Republicans are targeting four Democrats as potential yes votes: Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of IN and Doug Jones of Alabama, who was not IN the Senate when Gorsuch was confirmed.
During the Gorsuch vote, three Democrats from conservative states ended up siding with Republicans, and a question now is whether they will support Kavanaugh. The exchange took place during a hearing to consider Kavanaugh's nomination to serve on the DC circuit. "This is definitely a solid step in the right direction", he says, "and therefore I expect those who do wish for the Constitution to be protected and respected to be avid supporters of Judge Kavanaugh for this position on the Supreme Court". A California law requiring "pregnancy crisis centers" to inform women of abortion options was ruled as a likely violation of first amendment rights by the court. Among those vowing to fight is Massachusetts Sen.
Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Rand Paul of Kentucky could potentially have some problems with Kavanaugh. 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.
"We've got some due diligence that we've got to do", Murkowski said Tuesday.

Remarks from two GOP senators considered "questionable" in their support of the president's Supreme Court nominee lend some hope that the Republican majority in the Senate may be able to confirm Brett Kavanaugh without any help from Democrats. Elizabeth Warren tweeted yesterday, following up on her initial Monday night tweet: "Trump wants to put Brett Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS -but he can't do it without a Senate majority". "And I think it's going to be a lovely thing to watch over the next month".
In his dissent, Kavanaugh conceded that unauthorized immigrants on U.S. soil do have a right to due process under the 14th Amendment, but wrote that undocumented youth in custody were not entitled to "abortion on demand".
