Democratic senator leaves door slightly open to voting for Kavanaugh

Amy Coney Barrett

Trump planned to announce his pick Monday night. So it's in the president's interest to pick someone who can be confirmed quickly. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line. Is there one of those four you could support, or do you think Democrats should unite and oppose whomever the president taps?

Two other vulnerable Democratic senators up for re-election this fall ― Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Jon Tester of Montana ― did not support Gorsuch's nomination.

All of the candidates are relatively young and could help shape legal doctrine on the high court for decades to come.

There is bound to be a lot of media fanfare around the announcement since Trump's choice will mark a significant and lasting shift in how the Supreme Court rules on cases.

"If that nominee is from the pre-approved list selected by Leo and the Heritage Foundation, every one ought to understand what it means for the freedom of women to make their own healthcare decisions, and for the protection for Americans with preexisting conditions".

The process is arduous, with the private meetings giving way to days of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats. And I believe this person will do a great job. The White House had asked for McConnell's advice on the matter, the official said. I've always gone in there assuming that the judge - he's going to make up their mind based on the facts and what they hear, not based on a political litmus test requires.

Kethledge, a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School, is a former Kennedy clerk and a former in-house lawyer at Ford Motor Co.

MARTIN: So who's left on the president's short list? In that decision, Kethledge accepted the assertions of Border Patrol agents that in using the terms "wets" and "tonks", they were referring to undocumented persons generally and not to Hispanics specifically. "For these and other reasons, we are calling on citizens to urge their senators to firmly oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh as a Justice on the United States Supreme Court".

Barrett - a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal appeals judge last fall - excited social conservatives with her testimony when questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings past year. Dianne Feinstein told Barrett, a Catholic, that "the dogma lives loudly within you", suggesting her faith would influence her judicial decisions, a statement that was roundly criticized. Since 2006, he has been a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington.

"He's a good man and I like him", Casey said of Hardiman.

But Trump appointed Barrett to the Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit just nine months ago, and he may well leave her to gain more experience. Judge Amy Coney Barrett is the favored nominee among the religious right.

"Bob Casey is so blinded by partisanship that he is opposing a nominee for the Supreme Court before the pick is announced".

Kavanaugh, 53, now serves as a judge on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.

Kavanaugh, 53, began his career as a clerk to Kennedy. He also was a key aide to Kenneth Starr during Starr's investigation of President Bill Clinton, worked on behalf of George W. Bush's campaign during the election recount in 2000 and served in the Bush White House.

In his dozen years on the court, Kavanaugh has been involved in some 286 opinions.
