Sullivan meets Supreme Court nominee and says he’ll vote to confirm him

Ismael LynchJul 13, 2018

West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, battling for reelection in a state Trump won in 2016, in a statement on Kavanaugh's nomination, said the "Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare".

Remember: This is precisely what McConnell flagged for Trump as a potential problem with Kavanaugh's nomination: Never that he wasn't qualified, but that his extensive time in government service, and the documents that come with it, cannot only lead to possible surprises and also give Democrats grounds - legitimate or not - to delay consideration of the nomination. "He's simply someone who believes in the letter of the law", Loesch said.

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nomination listed himself as the treasurer of the "Keg City Club - 100 Kegs or Bust" in his high school yearbook.

"Just as I did when Merrick Garland and Neil Gorsuch were nominated", Manchin noted, "I will evaluate Judge Kavanaugh's record, legal qualifications, judicial philosophy and particularly, his views on healthcare".

"To my Democratic colleagues, I ask no more of you than I ask for myself, use the qualifications standard, having said that, I know most won't", Graham said.

President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, would be the fourth graduate of Yale Law School on the bench, but a group of Yale Law students and alumni say "people will die if he is confirmed".

According to the Daily Caller, it was a passerby that spotted the Supreme Court nominee on her way home from work Wednesday night.

Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the Senate.

Why Puerto Ricans in Florida could swing Senate race Trump delivers another promise to conservatives with Supreme Court Dem senator to oppose Supreme Court nominee, cites "corrupt bargain" with "far Right" MORE (D-Pa.) is also up for reelection and has said he will vote "no" on Kavanaugh.

Yale Constitutional law professor Akhil Reed Amar praised Kavanaugh in an op-ed for the New York Times, titled "A Liberal's Case for Brett Kavanaugh", writing that this is Trump's "finest hour, his classiest move".

A liberal group, Demand Justice, has promised its own $5 million ad campaign to defeat Kavanaugh, focused on Democratic senators from Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia and Republicans from ME and Alaska. But that is always going to be the case, and I don't think after the Clinton Administration, the Bush Administration, or now the Obama Administration, throwing up our hands presidency after presidency makes much sense. "I look forward to meeting with him and discussing his record first-hand".

The Senate rejected his confirmation 58-42.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday rattled off topics Kavanaugh might have to rule on as a Supreme Court justice. A slate of progressive senators and 2020 White House hopefuls, including Sens.
